Rep. Dan Burton, (R-Ind) is what you’d probably call a “horse’s ass.”
First, he co-sponsored the “Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act,” which would impose a three year jail sentence for anyone “possessing, shipping, transporting, purchasing, selling, delivering, or receiving any horse, horse flesh, or carcass with the intent that it be used for human consumption.” (The bill’s Democrat sponsor was John Conyers, D-Mich.).
Of course, there’s too many damn horses in the United States, and they keep on breeding. So what to do… what to do….
Here comes Dan Burton again. He wants to spend federal funds to give horses birth control. (source). Meanwhile, his republican colleagues want to cut funding for birth control for humans.
