RNC Chair: War on Women as Fictional as "War on Caterpillars"
Put this one in the "huh?" column.
Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, dismisses the notion that anti-choice politicians in his party are waging a War on Women:
If the Democrats said we had a war on caterpillars and every mainstream media outlet talked about the fact that Republicans have a war on caterpillars, then we'd have problems with caterpillars. It's a fiction.
A fiction, eh? That's not what's happening in Congress.
Let's recall what anti-choice Republicans in Congress have been up to lately:
- Pushing the Blunt amendment, which could have allowed employers and corporations to block their employees from getting insurance coverage of birth control. Every Republican senator but one voted for this measure.
- Holding a House committee hearing with an all-male panel attacking birth control.
- Attempting to defund Planned Parenthood and eliminate the Title X family-planning program.
These are facts, Mr. Priebus.
It's also a fact that women voters are noticing these attacks, and are rallying around President Obama.
Mr. Priebus, please stop politicizing women's health--and, please, leave the poor caterpillars out of it.
