Bad Republican: John Kyl (Publicus Proventus)
Republicans, who will let you die in the streets if you disagree with their political views, also do not mind simply making up lies to tell on the floor of Congress, as Republican Senator John Kyl (Liar; AZ), claiming -- falsely-- that abortions make up "90%" of what Planned Parenthood does.
That statement was a lie, and Kyl -- a liar - - knew it; his staff later said that Kyl's speech wasn't intended to be factual.
All things considered, lying isn't as bad as allowing convicted rapists to get health care while denying it to children (as Republicans do), but it's still bad. So John Kyl, welcome to the ranks of Bad Republicans.
