When is a law which received 415 votes in the House in 2005, and was signed by George W. Bush not conservative enough?

The even shorter version of the summary linked to above, is that the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee all voted against reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act. You see, the law treats homosexuals equally and is too soft on immigrants. Also, we spend too much money on it. "It" being preventing violence against women, of course.

I'd like to blame this on election year politics. I can't tell if that would make it better or worse.
