In response to the Senate vote to withhold funds to Planned Parenthood and jeopardize access to lifesaving healthcare services for women and families, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Communications Director Lauren Passalacqua issued the following statement:
“This is yet another hyper political, very dangerous policy pursued at the expense of finding common ground that will actually help working Americans. If Republicans could end their fixation on making it hard for women and families to access health care, we could move on to boosting businesses that create good paying jobs, making education more affordable and ensuring that the middle class can get quality healthcare. This is the third time in recent weeks that the Republicans have been forced to summon Vice President Pence to cast a tie-breaking vote, which is just another indication that the GOP’s unpopular and self-interested politics are out-of-step with the American people. Make no mistake about it: a woman’s ability to get lifesaving care, birth control and make her own healthcare decisions will be on the ballot in 2018, and we will hold Republicans accountable for their reckless overreach.”
