DCCC Hits Cantor Over Violence Against Women Act (VIDEO)

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released a video Tuesday going after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) over reportedly blocking the Violence Against Women Act. 

Cantor on Tuesday is set to deliver a policy address aimed at recasting the Republican Party in the wake of the 2012 election.

“No matter how much the Tea Party House Republicans try to rebrand their party, the fact remains: They are still the party that is blocking funding to prevent domestic violence,” DCCC press secretary Emily Bittner said in a statement. “For years, the Violence Against Women Act enjoyed broad, bipartisan support – until the Tea Party War on Women. American women don’t want to see the clock turned back on their safety or their rights, and no sales job can change the truth, that Tea Party House Republicans will relentlessly pursue their War on Women.”
