Mitt Romney (Matthew Reichbach)
Repealing equal pay wasn't Walker's only anti-woman action last week. He signed three other bills rolling back the clock on women's rights, and women's health:
Yes, he banned private coverage of abortion—that's disallowing any insurance company operating in the state's future exchange from offering abortion coverage, which the federal law unfortunately allows. The second bill, Republicans argued, would prevent something that actually doesn't happen—webcam consultations between women and their doctors. There are criminal penalties attached for physicians who don't conduct the additional, unnecessary consultation. The Wisconsin Medical Society opposed the bill because it interferes with the doctor-patient relationship. And rounding out the parade of backward-thinking, keeping children in the dark about their sexual health.So Mitt Romney should be challenged, again, on his steadfast support for Walker, particularly in light of his deepening problem with women in the polls. Of course, Mitt being Mitt, if he is challenged he'll just outsource the question to his wife.
