It’s A War For Women, Says The GOP
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) tells us:
“You think about a changing 21st-century workforce and how women make up half of our workforce. Fifty percent are the primary income earners in their households,” McMorris Rodgers said a press conference on Wednesday. “They are making the majority of purchasing decisions — 80, 85 percent of purchasing decisions — yes, women like to shop. So our workforce has changed, but our laws also need to reflect what is a changing workforce.”
OK, telling us that women like shopping is a sexist cliché, but women’s economic power is real and very powerful, and so I suppose that women should be excited by a party that always favors people over multinational corporations, fair pay, an increase in the minimum wage, and high-quality education for everyone. Which is to say women should be excited by any party but the Republicans.
The Republicans would be better off with their more successful effort to regulate vaginas than to take this route.
