    Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-FL) proposal to amend a Senate bill to limit federal pregnancy programs to biological females was opposed by all 50 Democrats on Sunday.

    Rubio shared the discussion of his proposed amendment in a video released on Twitter.

    "Mr. President, the only people who are capable of being pregnant are biological females, and therefore I think federal pregnancy programs should be limited to biological females. And that's what this would do," Rubio stated during his comments on the Senate floor.

    "A few minutes ago I looked back across 5,500 years of human history. So far, every single pregnancy has been a biological female. So, therefore, the only thing I am trying to do is make sure that federal law is clear that since every pregnancy that's ever existed has been a biological female that our federal laws reflect that and our federal pregnancy programs are available to the only people who are capable of getting pregnant, biological females, very simple," he added.

    Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) offered a strong rebuttal following Rubio's speech.

    "When we are facing challenges in this country and helping our constituents to lower costs, it is outrageous that Republicans are trying to define pregnancy of all things on this floor on this day after hours of voting on amendments. I urge a no vote," Murray said.

    Rubio also spoke out against Democrats focusing on all-night voting focused on a climate change bill while Americans struggle with inflation, rising crime, and a growing border crisis.

    "While working Americans are struggling with high prices, worried about the border and terrorized by crime the Senate is spending all night voting on a democrat climate change bill," Rubio tweeted.

    He argued that everyday Americans are "being ignored, disrespected, and completely, completely obliterated by a bill that does absolutely nothing for them."

    Rubio's proposal follows strong comments last month by Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) on the issue.

    As The Daily Wire previously reported, video footage from a July press conference in Putnam County, Florida, showed the governor addressing liberal activist claims that men can become pregnant.

    "Can we actually agree that women get pregnant and not men?" he asked. "It's just unbelievable some of the stuff that you're hearing about that."

    DeSantis also spoke out on the issue when biological male swimmer Lia Thomas swam in the NCAA Women's Swimming and Diving Championship.

    "You have a swimmer that swims on the men's team for three years and then, all of a sudden, says they're gonna identify as a woman swimmer and swim against the women," DeSantis said.

    "And then they give that the national championship over these women who've been training for a long time," he continued. "And the second place was actually from Florida, who had won a silver medal in the Olympics. So, she got robbed of a national championship because the NCAA is really trying to make us complicit in something that's false."

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.

With Roe v Wade (originated in 1973) overturned by the US Supreme Court, thereby allowing decisions on abortion legislation completely returned to the states: Where do you find your position on such a "Life and Death" issue for the American People?
  Yes, I approve of the US Supreme Court's decision to reinstate this "medical" issue back to the states' legislative responsibility to regulate.
  No, I believe that every woman should have complete access to abortion on demand.
  This issue is far beyond my intellectual capacity to understand.
