As the GOP and the mainstream media (with no small amount of help from Democrats) attempt to distract women from their anti-woman policies, Republicans still cannot help themselves when it comes to making it readily apparent that the war on women — despite trite media reports to the contrary — is far from over:
The issue came up during a campaign event in Royal Oak, Mich. An attendee asked whether Hoekstra would support or “work to repeal” the law if elected to office.
“Will, you know, will repealing it be a priority? If you came back and said, you know, that’s really the thing that’s hurting my business the most. My guess is there are other things that we can do that have a higher priority in terms of what I, what I believe might need to be done. I think you know we need to create — that thing is a nuisance. It shouldn’t be the law,” replied Hoekstra.
This sort of thinking exemplifies what the GOP is about. That the Republicans are still making a mountain out of a Hilary Rosen mole hill while supporting policies that actually hurt working mothers says it all.
