The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was FINALLY renewed today and it is the same version that was proposed a year ago–with the clauses to cover for Native Americans, LGBT and immigrants.  We shouldn’t have to fight so damn hard to protect women who are being assaulted.  This wasn’t a difficult choice the Republicans wasted an entire year on it when they could have been focused on fixing our economy and creating more jobs.  The bill is now on it’s way to President Obama for signature.
