Republicans, your friends and mine! Oh, wait, you wanted to vote? Sorry, gotta go.

Bitch Ph.D. points out a display of brotherly love: “The House of Representatives is/was supposed to vote today on H.R. 1461, the Housing Finance Reform Act. It supports creation of affordable housing. Good, right? Well, there’s a little provision that’s been tacked on by the Republican Study Committee to disqualify non-profits from applying for that money if they’ve engaged in any voter participation activities in the previous year–including non-partisan registering of voters. In other words, this provision ties funding low-income housing to suppressing low-income voting. “
