Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spoke on the floor of the Senate on Monday evening about the ridiculous demands House Republicans were making in exchange for keeping the government open.

“Republicans have decided that the single most important issue facing our nation is to change the law so that employers can deny women access to birth control coverage,” she said. “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 get access to birth control in the year 2013 — not the year 1913 — the year 2013.”

The senior senator from Massachusetts went on to detail the process that had led to the shutdown, including the Senate’s passing a budget that replaces the automatic cuts known as the sequester, which will cost our economy 900,000 jobs.

She went on to detail why the cuts are so disastrous to research and the battle against America’s leading cause of death — heart disease.

Howard Stern Has A Blunt Message For Anti-Vaxxers

Shock Jock Howard Stern had some blunt words for the selfish anti-vaxxer crowd that refuses to grasp the grounded science behind vaccines. Stern, by no means a supporter of government intervention into the private lives of citizens, prides himself as a thoughtful citizen who regards vaccination as the most basic thing you can do as a citizen. Stern, who has used his Sirius/XM platform in the past to scold Trumpers, is absolutely done with anti-vaxxers and their never-ending stream of idiotic conspiracies.

In the clip below, Stern shoots down stupid anti-vax theories of "magnetism."
