‘Bring It’: Women’s Groups Want To Go Toe To Toe With Romney On The Economy

NOW President Terry O’Neill discussed the hypocrisy of Mitt Romney’s economic strategy with Talking Points Memo, at a joint press conference called to announce NOW’s endorsement of President Barack Obama: “We are going to be fully engaged on talking about the economy and how Mitt Romney is a job killer and in particular is a job killer for women. If you look at [recent government] layoffs, fully 28 percent of them happened in Texas. More than 40 percent — another 40 percent — happened in those states that were taken over by the Tea Party in the 2010 elections: Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, Florida, Pennsylvania. Those are the very leaders that Mitt Romney is promoting as people that he thinks they’ve got all the right ideas.”
