Essential Estrogen: All I want for Christmas
Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen
If I could have a Christmas miracle it would be that the Iowa GOP would begin to listen to those of us who don't put social issues as the most important issue to be focused on in the next legislative session. So many of us are hurting. Our families are suffering. We are putting on a brave face. When others ask us if we have our Christmas shopping done we might smile and say, "not yet" or "yes, it's all done." because we have no money for gifts and know that our artificial Christmas tree is up and decorated but underneath is bare. Our families understand, it's not the first time we've stood together and encouraged one another. Money is so tight. Some of us have lost our jobs, unexpected bills, the costs of health care, taxes, student loans and the lists goes on and on. Do we care about social issues? Sure, but that is not what we want our leaders to focus on when we are facing this economic crisis.
