This is just plain stupid:
Suddenly, that joke is a lot less funny.
Michigan Republicans are now pushing a bill that would grant a tax credit to any fetus proven to be at least 12 weeks along by December 31st. Calling it an “advance” on the actual tax break the family would receive the next calendar year, the GOP frames the financial help as a chance to offset expenses with pregnancy.
Michigan slashed the child tax credit last year. Now Michigan Republicans want to give fetal tax credits. They also don’t want you to say “vagina.”
Stop the planet, please. I want to get off.
