Tell Republicans to STOP Waging War on Women

  In an interview done in 2012, Romney, running for president ever so casually stated, Planned Parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that” among other things he said that year was offensive and women didn’t appreciate it though it’s clear comments like those are tactics of winning by any means necessary along with threats to kill the Affordable health care Act just because it has the Obama signature on it, which btw IS helping millions of middle and lower class families. In response, most women voted for Barack Obama. In 2012 it showed just how out of touch Republicans were but now in this 2017 era of trump, Republicans don’t see enough tax breaks, enough revenue, don’t believe the middle and lower class folks pay enough while they have to pay in their minds too much in some form and that is a scary thought in itself, but the latest legislation against women’s rights indicates that cliche war on women is real. The conservative movement waging War on Women with a mission to take away the rights of women to decide what health care we want, need, can afford or access.

Women from all backgrounds who believe in choice need to Stand up and Fight back against this unseemly attempt to destroy and dismantle the Affordable health care Act while rolling

back the contraceptive clock which is headed toward a complete ban on abortion and possibly repealing Roe V Wade.

 We are all Freedom Fighters on some level every day.

  For more than 90 years, Planned Parenthood has worked to improve women’s and men’s health and safety. They have made it possible for nearly 170,000 women to obtain low-cost clinical breast exams while providing more health services than any organization in the country such as mammogram referrals, all supported by grants. The attacks by Republicans on women, our health care and insurance rights have grown; to include congressional candidates and now the president . It is important to know that some of these very members of congress or political action organizers were pro-choice and a supporter of Planned Parenthood only a few years ago or voted pro-life but lived a hypocritical pro-choice lifestyle. Now, so desperate to win that they not only move to the extreme right of politics, flip-flop on financial issues and are willing to abandoned women as well. Thing is,though Women are not one issue voters, most believe a women’s right to choose is a daily pursuit on all levels in all its forms.  The fact is, in 2012 over 65% said they did not want anyone defunding Planned Parenthood but the message has fallen on deaf ears since the republican trump’s trifecta realized what differences they can make … I wonder just how the women in their lives see these attitudes and if they have looked out the window later …a whole lot of women regret voting for the extreme right

 Women’s health care should NOT be a political football

 Women and Men who support protecting the right to choose ask Republican Political Candidates to put Women’s health care or access to safe affordable health care ahead of politically driven, conservative religious, anti-abortion groups to aid or fund tax breaks for the wealthy.

leave Republicans a message – thanks for taking action

Mitt Has A Plan For Women

                Mitt Has A Plan For Women

During last night’s debate, Mitt Romney sure had a lot of opinions about women in the workplace. He seemed to think he was connecting with women voters. Do you agree?

Here’s the transcript of Romney from last night:

I had the — the chance to pull together a Cabinet and all the  applicants seemed to be men. And I — and I went to my staff, and I said,  how come all the people for these jobs are — are all men?

They  said, well, these are the people that have the qualifications. And I  said, well, gosh, can’t we — can’t we find some — some women that are  also qualified?

And — and so we — we took a  concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could  be qualified to become members of our cabinet. I went to a number of  women’s groups and said, can you help us find folks? And I brought us  whole binders full of — of women. I was proud of the fact that after I  staffed my cabinet and my senior staff that the University of New York  in Albany did a survey of all 50 states and concluded that mine had more   women in senior leadership positions than any other state in America.

Now,  one of the reasons I was able to get so many good women to be part of  that team was because of our recruiting effort, but number two, because I  recognized that if you’re going to have women in the workforce, that  sometimes they need to be more flexible. My chief of staff, for  instance, had two kids that were still in school. She said, I can’t be  here until 7:00 or 8:00 at night. I need to be able to get home at 5:00  so I can be there for — making dinner for my kids and being with them  when they get home from school. So we said, fine, let’s have a flexible  schedule so you can have hours that work for you.

I don’t know about you, but I’m insulted.

Truth Team … from Stephanie


Truth TeamMitt Romney deliberately tried to confuse voters about where he stands on many issues. I want to clear up where President Obama and Mitt Romney agree — and where they disagree — on one particularly important issue: Social Security.
President Obama and Romney agree that we need to make gradual changes to make sure Social Security stays solvent over the long term. The disagreement is over how to do it — and that’s where President Obama and Romney have fundamentally different ideas.
President Obama will under no circumstances agree to put your retirement at risk by privatizing Social Security, and he will reject any plan that slashes Social Security benefits. Because Romney opposes any effort to raise a single penny in new revenue, his Social Security plan is forced to rely solely on big benefit cuts to maintain solvency — analysis of a similar plan showed current workers would see cuts of up to 40 percent that would badly hurt their financial security.
Romney and Ryan also supported the Bush privatization plan that would have exposed Social Security benefits to the financial crisis that devastated many pension funds and retirement accounts.
Take a look at this post that details the clear choice voters have on Social Security in this election, and be sure to share it with everyone you know who’d be affected:

Thanks for all you do,
Stephanie
