I bet that got your attention.
Now that I have it.
Three things have me thinking about how short sided and ultimately stupid we are.
A. How is the government gonna TAX ME HIGHER because I filed jointly with my husband?
The marriage tax is real and it needs to be address.
For example, the fact that a married couples COMBINED incomes, if they file jointly, throw them into a higher income tax bracket. Thus the second income, which is usually the womans, is taxed at a significantly higher rate than if she filed seperately.
B. Abortion is NOT a fringe issue. Do you know any who has had one recently or is thinking about it. Tril talk.
Even if influential democrats see abortion as a fringe issue, it isn't. For example, remember Kos's willingness to be cavalierly dismissive regarding abortion.
C. The fact that regardless of your class, income, hood you live in, as a woman you either will be faced with an abortion question or childcare issue.
Which brings me to the following questions:
. Why isn't childcare access AND Abortion AT THE CENTER of the democrats agenda. This is some sh*t that the working and the middle class can ride for. Women Vote. We have babies. Even if we personally don't have babies, our Momma's, Sisters, Best friends have babies, and they ALL HAVE ISSUES w/ childcare?
 Abortion and childcare affects women AND men across class. From the UPS Momma, to the Wall Street momma. From the Fed Ex Daddy to the Professor Daddy. Real talk.
I read Ms. Magazine last weekend at the park.
