Message To Republicans: You Caused Your Women Issues!
Stop playing the blame game and take some responsibility for losing women’s votes. It wasn’t the Democrats that put together an all male panel to discuss birth control. The Democrats do not oppose fair pay legislation. The Democrats have not opposed the Violence against women act. The Democrats did not threaten a government shut down and waste months of legislation time on Planned Parenthood (a service nearly all women who are broke including my self at one time to get an affordable pap smear). The Democrats as a party are not supporting legislation that forces the government to insert a vaginal probe in me against my will if I choose to end my pregnancy, not to mention pay for the unwanted procedure.
Women aren’t stupid and can see that the GOP legislation these past 2 years has been wasted and focused on anything but real issues. There were over 1100 bills waging war on women by Republicans this last year. Now they have the gall to look straight into the camera and lie to the American public: "What War on Women?" The GOP has declared war on women and now with the presidential election on the horizon, we as women are supposed to believe they now care? The Republicans had their chance and they blew it. Women voters are offended by GOP in-actions to further women’s issues in this country and have lost the majority of the women’s votes. Let's get as many Republicans out of office as we can. They wanted a war, well, they're getting one. It is only the beginning. Next step the voting booth and we're going to win! -Cihuapilli
U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin, urges people to make their frustration known in the upcoming primary election, the November election and beyond.
"Do we have a movement here or do we have a moment?" "Lets look at what we have here. The attacks on Planned Parenthood, the difficulty we've had getting an equal pay law approved for women, the action in some states to move backwards of that in employment discrimination," "I think it is a war on women. It's certainly not a peace conference and so I disagree with Speaker Boehner."
-Congressman Lloyd Doggett.
