Hero senator Elizabeth Warren had some choice words for the GOP the day before they effectively shut down the government.
From the Senate floor on September 30th:
"With millions of people out of work, with an economic recovery still far too fragile, with students and families being crushed by student loan debt, with millions of seniors denied their chance at one hot meal a day with Meals on Wheels and millions of little children pushed out of Head Start because of a sequester, with the country hours away from a government shutdown and days away from a potential default on the nation's debt, the republicans have decided that the single most important issue facing our nation is to change the law so that employers can deny women access to birth control coverage."
I have a daughter and I have granddaughters and I will never vote to let a group of backward-looking ideologues cut women's access to birth control. We have lived in that world and we are not going back. Not ever.
