Congress Has a Panel on Women’s Health and No Women Were Invited At the House Hearing – ”Default Topics”

What were they discussing…birth control. Imagine a women’s panel with no women to add content. Nancy Pelosi was quick to jump on that one as well. The second panel had women. What’s wrong with these GOP folks, we know they are among the most digital illiterates out there so due to lack of keeping up is this their favorite battle ground trying to control women? This is how digitally illiterate folks in Congress function on the GOP side it appears all the time anymore.
The second panel went like this:
“The Democratic women on the panel walked out of a hearing on the contraception policy after Issa refused to allow testimony from Sandra Flake, a Georgetown University law student who supports the administration’s policy.”
Listen to the video below “where’s the women?”
Sad to say but the “whack job” Issa is from California where I live. BD
Republicans are taking hits in Congress and on the campaign trail as the birth-control mandate issue continues to dominate the health policy conversation.
While the GOP had the upper hand politically as late as last week, there are clear signs that Democrats' strategy of constantly portraying Republican efforts as a "war on women" is paying dividends. House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) walked squarely into the line of fire Thursday by failing to invite a single woman to sit on the first panel of his hearing on whether the healthcare law mandate violates religious freedoms.
