Quote of the Day: Shoving it "down our throats"

By Diane Silver

The Kansas House debate over banning domestic partner registries prompted what may be the best quote I've seen in a while.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the sponsor of ban, Rep. Lance Kinzer, R-Olathe, "said if couples are denied health insurance because they are unmarried, then they should get married."

That brought a sharp response from state Rep. Thomas “Tim” Owens, R-Overland Park, who said, “We are a nation of freedom, and I get real tired of hearing people try to shove down our throats how they believe that everybody else should act.”

Oh yeah.
