As I dig out from my trip, I’m combing through piles of fundraising emails from the DNC. It is amazing how the absence of a woman on a single panel has been turned into the preface of the Handmaid’s Tale for these people. This email this morning is, roughly speaking, the umpteenth of it’s kind I’ve gotten:
What are Republicans so afraid of that they won’t even give women a seat at the table to discuss women’s issues?
Frankly, it doesn’t matter what their excuse is.
We have just 24 hours left to show that we have what it takes to end their assault on women’s health care.
With the critical February Federal Election Commission deadline approaching, we are still $148,000 short of our $1 million grassroots goal. Will you help put us over the top?
Chip in $3 or more right away and a group of committed Democrats will match your gift dollar-for-dollar.
Never in my lifetime have I seen Republicans in Congress so determined to silence women and deny us access to basic preventative health care.
The most powerful and important thing we can do is hold them accountable and defeat them.
There are just 24 hours left. Act quickly:
Rep. Diana DeGette
Co-Chair of the House Pro-Choice Caucus
