Republican Tennessee Congressman Phil Roe continues his party’s ridiculous, sexist and insulting way of discussing women’s issues. Besides offering old bromides that don’t address true reform to health care, Roe talks against covering women’s reproductive needs because he and his wife are “fixed.”
“Right now, the federal government tells you want you have to buy,” he explained. “I’m going to be a little graphic here, okay? Let me tell you why that’s important, why that’s driven the cost up through the ceiling.”
“I have been fixed. My wife has been fixed,” Roe said. “Both of us have determined if we thought we had to raise another kid right now, we would jump off the Capitol, head first into the parking lot, face first. You got the idea, don’t want any more kids.”
No word on whether Roe, to get his wife and himself “fixed,” went to see a veterinarian.
