The lines between parody and politics have been greatly blurred by today’s Democratic Party.

Wait. What? Seriously?

Do these people have ANY other concerns apart from forcing employers to pay for employees’ birth control? The national debt? IRS and VA corruption? Who would have thought they could have ridden such a lame horse for so long?

[Correction]

The SenateDems account was actually paraphrasing something that Senator Fauxcahontus herself actually said. More than once. Out loud even.

From Senator Elizabeth Warren’s page:

“In fact, letting employers decide whether women can get birth control covered on their insurance plans is SO important that the Republicans are willing to shutter the government and potentially tank the economy. Over whether women can access birth control coverage.” —September 30, 2013

“Remember last year’s government shutdown that nearly tanked our economy? That all started with a GOP threat to get Democrats to change the law so employers could deny coverage for birth control.” —July 9, 2014

And from today’s Washington Examiner:

“Remember last year’s government shutdown that nearly tanked our economy?” Warren asked. “That fight started with a GOP effort to hold the whole operation of the federal government hostage in order to try to force Democrats and the president to let employers deny workers access to birth control.”

Obsess much?

Editor’s note: The headline of this post was updated to indicate that the words tweeted by @SenateDems were a paraphrase of remarks made by Senator Elizabeth Warren.
