We all can agree that women's issues were a focal point of this past election and the American people spoke loud and clear. Voters rejected the backwards ideas of Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock, Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney. The American people voted for the most sitting female Senators at any point in our nations history and the most diverse Congress ever. Yet, when the Republicans announced their committee chairs, this is what it looked like: 19 white men.
The contrast could not be more clear about which party represents America. Today, Nancy Pelosi announced the Democratic Committee Leadership. Here's what it looks like:
The result? Seven women, and eight minorities. A portrait that is a much clearer reflection of our country.
It just seems as though the GOP does not get it. Just as they continue to leave women and minorities out of their party, they also continue to persue policies that the American people have rejected time and time again. Their fiscal cliff proposal:
To extend all the Bush Tax Cuts and cut programs Americans rely on like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. A platform they ran on in and where handed a sound defeat. The American people don't want more of the same GOP and neither do we.
Join us in standing up to this out of touch GOP, and tell Democrats in Congress that no deal is better than a bad deal. Add your name here: http://bit.ly/TJFVsI
