House and Senate Republicans

Join Congresswoman Diana DeGette and Stand Up for Women's Rights

    1. Sponsored by

      Rep. Diana DeGette for Congress

Update: The House just passed H.R. 3 by a vote of 251 to 175 and the bill is heading to a Senate vote. Join Congresswoman DeGette in continuing to protest this dangerous attack on women's rights and health.

______________________________________________________________________________________

This week the House is voting on H.R. 3 -- extreme legislation that we know is dangerous to women's health, disrespects the judgment of American women, and could be one of the most radical assaults on reproductive health in our lifetime.

Remember the Republican campaign rhetoric from 2010? This Congress was supposed to about jobs and the economy. But we know now it was all smoke and mirrors. Rather than working together to create jobs, Republicans are proposing legislation that is not only extreme and divisive, but actually raises taxes on individuals and companies that provide health care plans to employees.

Congress should be strengthening middle class families, not trying to stop people from getting health services.

Since day one, the Republican leadership made these extreme attacks on reproductive rights its top priority, and if the GOP gets its way, the effects on women and their families would be devastating. This bill denies coverage for a full range of health services for any woman who receives her health insurance through Medicaid and tries to do the same in the private market. It's simple: all of the bill's provisions hurt women.

We saw in the budget debate that our voices can really make a difference. And now with the vote just hours away, we need to stand up to make our voices heard.

Join Representative Diana DeGette, co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus, and tell House Republicans to focus on the real priorities of the American people.

      This is an outrageous attack on our privacy. The Republicans are such hypocrites. They objected to rescinding the Bush tax cuts on the wealthy, claiming that it would hurt small businesses, the generator of jobs. Now when they should be focused on creating jobs, they are voting to impose a tax on guess who -- small businesses.
