Ahh, If only every American voter would watch this extraordinary clip from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show. Republicans would not only fail to take the white house and U.S. Senate; they would likely lose control of the House. Maddow, helped by Sens. Harkin, Mikulski and Boxer, and Rep. Jan Schakowsky, explains (a.) Why Obamacare is a tremendous advancement that benefits millions of Americans and (b.) why the often-heard term “Republican war on women” is not all that much of a stretch.
When Republicans threaten to repeal life-saving reforms and replace them with the status quo ante the Affordable Care Act, and then go even further in restricting the rights of women to make decisions about their own health, lives will be lost and the health of millions will certainly be threatened. It’s hard to blame those at risk for likening it to a “war.”
