A Texas Republican congressman says it's ”absolutely repugnant" that the GOP-led Senate hasn't acted on repealing the health care law and he singled out ”some female senators from the Northeast."

In a radio interview with ”1440 Keys," Rep. Blake Farenthold said the Senate has failed to show the courage to dismantle the health care law. The Senate is expected to vote Tuesday on whether to move ahead on legislation.

Farenthold complained about some female lawmakers and said, ”If it was a guy from south Texas, I might ask him to step outside and settle this Aaron Burr-style."

Maine Sen. Susan Collins has been consistent in opposing the GOP replacement to Obamacare. Other female senators who have expressed reservations are Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

“If it was a guy from south Texas, I might ask him to step outside and settle this Aaron Burr-style.”

but it's those damn emotional women senators, basing their decisions on actual data/consequences, and not dumbass macho peacock bullshit.

I like how he claims he would settle this with a duel if this was a South Texas man. Put your money where your mouth is you cowardly fuck.

Because overweight blowhards ALWAYS win gun duels! Their fat fingers act as cushions against recoil for increased accuracy!

Uh, judging by your physical health I'm pretty sure any female senator could take you in a fight buddy.

What a classy man. I'm sure he would totally duel a male Texan senator and that his comment is in no way merely aggression towards women stepping out of line. /s

"Can't these women just shut up and get in line while us, privileged white men, handle their issues because we know better"
