Pelosi to Women: We Intend To Win For You
Joining the Obama Administration’s outreach to women, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and U.S. Representative Rosa DeLauro (D, CT-3) held a conference call last week, focusing on issues affecting women.
Pelosi and DeLauro plowed through accomplishments for and concerns about the status of women in the United States.
On the 2010 health care bill, DeLauro emphasized that the real benefits in the bill, for women, will be transformative, declaring, “Women’s health for the first time is being treated on par with men’s health.”
Read more in my full post at Women and Politics about what Pelosi and DeLauro had to say, especially about how they beat back former President Bush’s attempt to privatize Social Security and the lessons learned then that should be applied now (hint: has a little something to do with unity, staying on message, standing firm and letting the people see for themselves that the changes being pushed were going to cut the benefits they already had).
