GOP Wages War on ‘War on Women’ - City & Region - the Buffalo News
Turning the tables
First and foremost, Project GROW aims to turn the tables on Democrats who accuse the GOP of waging a “war on women.”
This comes after years in which Republican politicians handed the Democrats the ammunition they need to make that accusation. For instance, the Republican-led House dawdled for nearly two years before reauthorizing a bill aimed at combatting violence against women, while taking up anti-abortion legislation that was doomed to fail in the Democrat-led Senate. And the GOP has repeatedly tried to repeal Obamacare in total - which would once again allow insurers in some states to consider womanhood as a “pre-existing condition” that allows insurers to charge higher rates.
Given that history, Democrats say that it’s clear that the GOP is waging a war on women that it cannot win.
“The issues the Republicans have not just put forward but put at the top of their priority list alienate women,” said Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, who chairs the Democratic National Committee.
