Let me demonstrate this as easily as I can how the Republicans continue to wage war on women.
Majority of poor are women > House GOP proposes cutting programs that help the poor > Mitt Romney supports House GOP plan = Republicans hate poor people
From Matthew Yglesias:
Given Mitt Romney’s somewhat eccentric interest in deliberately focusing attention on the question of which presidential candidate’s economic policies are better for women, it’s worth noting that the House GOP budget Romney has endorsed enacts steep cuts in programs aimed at helping poor people. They want to reduce the budget for Medicaid which gives health care to poor people. But they also want to reduce spending on nutrition assistance to poor people and housing assistance to poor people.
Indeed, every single program that helps poor people in the United States would face severe budget cuts under the Romney/Ryan budget. And judging by the Census Bureau’s statistics on the demographic composition of poor families (PDF) converted into convenient chart form above, it turns out that the overwhelming majority of poor adults in the United States are women.
