Ouch! Stabenow Puts Down Jon Kyl

Jon Kyl is an asshole, there's no doubt about that. He'll say anything and do anything to oppose any Democratic initiatives. But today he went too far for Sen Debbie Stabenow!


Just before the Senate Finance Committee wrapped up for the long weekend, members debated one of Sen. Jon Kyl's (R-AZ) amendments, which would strike language defining which benefits employers are required to cover. 

Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) argued that insurers must be required to cover basic maternity care. (In several states there are no such requirements.) 

"I don't need maternity care," Kyl said.

[...]Stabenow interrupted: "I think your mom probably did."
