Ehlers votes against mental health parity bill

The House passed the Paul Wellstone Mental Health and Addiction Equity Act on a vote of 268-148. 47 Republicans joined 221 Democrats in supporting passage of the bill.

According to Speaker Nancy Pelosi's blog, The Gavel:
This bipartisan legislation will end discrimination against patients seeking treatment for mental illnesses by prohibiting insurers and group health plans from imposing treatment or financial limitations when they offer mental health benefits that are more restrictive from those applied to medical and surgical services.
Congressman Ehlers voted against the bill.

Is there a men v. women referendum in the 2008 election cycle?
Simple answer to a simplistic question: yes. Of course American women are not a monolithic block, voting in lock step anymore. Sometimes it has been written “good men and women of faith” with others ignored. Americans in 2008 should by now have heard of feminists, feminism, femini-nazis, radical feminists’ and the maternal revenue service; still American Women are not a monolithic group nor are American men.
Pro abortion, incessant demand for child support, VAWA and equal pay for equal work tend to be associated with feminists. End of misandry or Father bashing, Boyz Crisis, Child Custody and parenting time tend to be associated with men. As there are various types of women, so to, there are different types of men: masculinists, anti-misandrists, Fathers Rights advocates, shared parenting advocates.
2008 has an American Presidential election, various elections for United States Senators and Representatives, representatives and senators for various state assemblies, judges and other local positions. In the several hundred elections being conducted, principally, November 4, 2008, no candidate has explicitly stated I am pro feminist or pro masculinist.
2008 US Presidential Race:
Obama articulates his position, first by saying “I was shaped more by my Father’s absence, than by his presence”. Obama authored the Responsible Fatherhood Act (mentions child support sixty-five times), explicitly endorses “women’s choice”, supports VAWA, and, speaks of families most often as “a single mother and her children”. Obama’s Vice Presidential mate, Joe Biden is the author of VAWA.
McCain asserts that abortion and Father’s Rights are best left to the States. The Republican Party appears to be pro-life, against VAWA and in the summer of 2008 congressional republicans passed the Child Support Collection assessment fee to custodial parents. We could simply view http://mensnewsdaily.com/. Republicans speak often about Social Security Reform, far too often men fail to realize that Social Security Act Title IV-D et al take substantial monies from the Social Security Fund (no longer a Trust since LBJ in 1964) to pay for TANF, Child Support Collection Systems and incentives, as well as other non-retirement expenditures. The republicans did have Boy Scouts at the RNC National Convention and at the announcement of Sarah Palin as the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate. The Department of Justice no longer accepts Duluth as a therapy for domestic violence, and Minnesota Program Development, copy right owner of the various published power and control wheels, dropped its published call “for and end to patriarchy and establishment of an equalitarian society”.
2008 elections in Michigan
In Michigan, long time Father’s Right supporter, Michigan Representative Jack Hoogendyk is challenging U.S. Senator Carl Levin a long time defender of VAWA for one of Michigan’s US Senate seats. The entire Michigan House of Representatives is up for election, incumbents Kevin Green, Dave Agema, Fulton Sheen, Rick Jones, Tome Pearce, Arlan Meekhof and others have all sponsored or co-sponsored Father Friendly legislation. Justin Amash running for his first term in the Michigan House of Representatives explicitly states his endorsement of Father’s Rights as do two Circuit Court Judge Candidates seeking office for the first time, Kevin Cronin and Brian Downs.
2008 elections across America
Men seem to be notorious for not working or voting together on Public Policy, in Michigan, you may need to ask one hundred guys before one could tell you of a pro male or pro Father candidate.
Is your candidate opposed to abortion, VAWA, spending social security dollars on non-retirement expenditures? Is your candidate in support of FairTax, shared parenting, Father Custody, advocating for and end to judicial creation of laws? You may have a pro male or pro Father candidate entered in elections you will be a part of.
Why a referendum at al?
At this moment buses in Dallas Texas are driving around with Father bashing domestic violence posters for all to see( DART): misandry in America, indeed across the globe, hurts all males individually and as a group. Prosecuting attorneys in California are arresting family members of Dads who have a child support arrearage, for assisting criminals.
As American men, we may disagree on pennant races, or the economy, even which soda pop we prefer; the examples are countless, mi hermanos, brothers, bruders: only by standing in solidarity will we end misandry in public policy and social perception.
