Villaraigosa: Republicans running on ‘platform of 1812’
After a week of watching the Republican National Convention, the Democratic convention chair has decided that the GOP 2012 platform looks more like the “platform of 1812.”
“If you look at their platform, the 2012 platform, it looks like it’s from another century — maybe even two,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa told Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday. “It’s the platform of 1812.”
“When you see they want to repeal the Affordable Care Act — providing 32 million people with health care — with no alternative plan of their own,” he continued. “They call for the self-deportation of 11 million people. No country in the world has ever done that. They don’t believe in abortion, even in the case of rape and incest.”
“It’s a platform from another century.”
