Sen. Bill Cassidy: 'Roads and bridges are a woman's problem' because they are 'doing the shopping'
NBC/screen grab

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) on Sunday insisted that infrastructure like roads and bridges is a "women's problem" because they do the "shopping."

Cassidy made the remarks on NBC's Meet the Press, where he was arguing on behalf of a bipartisan infrastructure bill.

"If you go home and talk to constituents who are stuck in traffic for an hour and a half getting to work and an hour and a half getting home -- three hours a day that they don't spend with their family -- they want a bridge coming to a town near them," Cassidy explained.

"My wife says that roads and bridges are a woman's problem if you will," the senator added. "Because oftentimes it is the woman -- aside from commuting to work -- who's also taking children to schools or doing the shopping. And the more time that she spends on that road, the less time she spends doing things of higher value."
