Rep. Mike Moon sponsored a resolution that calls on Sen. Claire McCaskill and the rest of the state's congressional delegation to show their manhood and repeal Obamacare:
How do you feel about endeavoring with "manly firmness," Sen. McCaskill?
“I don’t think you prove your manhood by kicking folks off their health coverage and once again letting insurance companies discriminate against women and sick people,” she wrote in her awesomely titled press release.
And Moon, what's all this borrowing from the founding documents, which said: "He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people"?
Moon told the Columbia Daily Tribune that, whereas, offense may have been taken, be it resolved that no offense was meant.
(There are three women, including McCaskill in the Missouri delegation. Two have firmly endeavored to repeal the health care law with their votes. And two women were co-sponsors on the resolution that will be referred to from here forward as the manly firmness resolution.)
Moon said: “It was not meant to downplay their womanhood at all. We just want them to know, every man and lady who is representing us, that we are demanding, as citizens of Missouri, that Obamacare be repealed and make it clear we don’t want a replacement.”
The fight to repeal the Affordable Care Act is also "just like going to war," according to Moon -- who, incidentally, has never gone to actual, non-metaphorical war himself. "You want a soldier to fight like a man," he said. "If a woman is in the trenches, you want them to fight like a man, too.”
