Speaker Boehner: Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening=Slush Fund

Speaker Boehner:
"And now, now we are going to have a fight over women's health. Give me a break. You know, this is the latest plank in the so-called war on women. Entirely created, entirely created by my colleagues across the aisle for political gain."
The Republican war on women is "entirely created by Boehner's political opponents for political gain"?  This is the speaker and all of his "ugah ugah" colleagues that bought into George Bush's tenuous fabrications about WMD's in Iraq, but they ignore mountains of legislation targeting women's reproductive freedom and hundreds of republican votes against equal pay.  Before you can fix a problem, you first have to see the problem. Speaker Boehner and his fellow republicans don't see any republican war on women.   Calling a fund for preventative health care; breast cancer and cervical cancer screening, a slush fund is not apt to reinforce one's argument that the republican war on women is a fiction.   Yes, the republicans gutted a fund from the Affordable Care Act that provided preventative cervical and breast cancer screening, in addition to childhood immunizations to pay for the student loan fix.  Seriously!
