Wasserman Schultz: GOP ‘Callous And Insensitive’ Toward Women

DNC chair and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz doubled down Sunday on the Democrats’ accusation that Republicans are waging a “war on women.”

“The focus of the Republican Party on turning back the clock for women really is something that’s unacceptable and shows how callous and insensitive they are towards women’s priorities,” she said on CNN’s State of the Union.

Wasserman Schultz cited the GOP’s anti-abortion push and opposition to various bills such as equal pay for women and access to contraception as evidence that the party’s policies are antithetical to women’s interests.
