Re: “To rebuild, GOP needs the long view,” Steven Kurlander’s column Nov. 15 Editor: The IMF and the UN tell us: Correcting economic [class] inequality is key to fostering national economic growth. We believe the GOP needs to grab that key to rebuild the party.
Correcting gender inequality is a key that fits that lock.
All nations since WWII have already corrected that (Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg). Results are astonishing.
Some nations saw their gross domestic product climb by 9 percent.
Revenues increase. Cost of court cases, public assistance, health benefits, food stamp equivalents decrease.
In America, win-win ERA is one bill that requires no funding.
Equal Rights Amendment ratification votes await truculent GOP politicians in the Florida legislature and seven other states and ERA speed-up bills in U.S. Senate and House. For 90 years increasingly angry women and men have waited for ERA hearings and votes!
But ERA never passed.
More than 88 percent of Americans endorse ERA. But politicians in just three of those eight United States obstruct its passage into the U.S. Constitution.
ERA benefits both men and women. ERA is “still viable and contemporaneous – does not regulate same-sex nor abortion. Anyone can read www.2PassERA.org.
ERA would make America’s ruling class’ careless sex discrimination a violation of the U.S. Constitution depending on the case. Maybe even the Republican legislative War on Women.
As GOP licks wounds inflicted by women’s wild drive over to the Democrats, it is overdue to put this nation out front again by launching the pile-driving economic engine of American women.
Eons overdue, we of National ERA Alliance now urge this nation’s politicians to pass the equal rights amendment. No more excuses. No more business as usual.
