They voted against the bill because they didn't want same sex partners to be included or immigrant women. That's a sorry excuse, but our senators do pander to the far right. I think no one should be subjected to domestic violence....or any other kind of violence for that matter.
Obama 2112! Yes we can...AGAIN!
