VIDEO: Robert Reich Warns that Republican Senate Control Means All-Out War on Women

No progressive-minded individual should be sanguine about prospect of a Republican majority in the Senate. Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich points out in the short video just how economically devastating this would be to women. Make no mistake, the Republican War on Women continues, and is making advances, as Republicans do their utmost to restrict a woman's right to healthcare and reproductive choices, deny them equal pay, and fight to keep minimum wage well below a living wage. That last one may not seem specifically targeted at women, but it is, Reich points out. Women make up the majority of minimum wage earners, many of whom are heads of households, supporting families on crumbs.

Watch Reich to see just what's at stake, and please vote.
