Republicans: Violence Against Women is Okay

Everyone seemed to notice that the House Republicans pulled the Sandy Relief Bill.  Among the other items that the Republicans didn't vote on was the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.  The Senate had already approved reauthorization and sent the bill to the House.  But the Republicans didn't vote on it, essentially saying violence against women is okay.

In addition to women, Republicans gave the thumbs to violence against LGBT people, immigrants and Native American women.
