Women are right, but the Republican war against women's livelihoods continues

What have women done to Senate Republicans, House Republicans and Mitt Romney that they oppose a woman receiving equal pay for an honest day's work? As I wrote in my column yesterday, I expect Democrats to wage a national crusade, from one corner of the nation to the other, for equal pay for honest work for women.

I applaud Senate Majority Leader Harry ReidHarry ReidSenate Dems accuse GOP of slow-walking Obama nominees The Trail 2016: GOP stages of grief Dems slam Trump over taco bowl tweet MORE (D-Nev.) for bringing pay equity for women to the Senate floor. I applaud House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Democrats for continuing this important battle. But what have women done to the GOP to deserve the shabby treatment Republicans are giving to American women?

Again, the Senate Republicans attack democracy in America by abusing the filibuster to oppose pay equity and attack the livelihoods of American women.

Again, the House Republicans oppose and blockade the rights of women and their families to earn a good living that is deserved and earned by good and honest work on the job.

Again, Mitt Romney tries to play both sides. He was for pay equity before he was against it, but in truth he is against it. Period.

What have women done to Republicans to deserve this? Republicans call it capitalism, but it is nothing more than sexism in a briefcase and an outrage against the women of America.

Mitt Romney is right about the immorality in our economy. The only problem is that Mitt Romney is attacking himself, Senate Republicans and House Republicans in their shabby and immoral treatment of the women of America.
