Pelosi rolls out economic agenda for women

WASHINGTON — At a summer lunch with reporters in her Capitol conference room, Rep. Nancy Pelosi rolled out an ambitious economic agenda for women with next year’s congressional elections in mind.
The California Democrat launched a legislative agenda of family-friendly policies, such as paycheck fairness for women, an increased federal minimum wage, and President Barack Obama’s proposed early childhood education initiative.
The agenda, coming as the legislative season begins to make way for next year’s campaigns, was designed to stand in contrast to bills being debated under the GOP majority on the House floor. “It’s all about letting women know there’s an opportunity for something different,” Pelosi said, over salads, sandwiches and sodas.
Republicans dismissed the Democratic effort as one that is outweighed by the costs the nation’s 2010 health care law – passed under Pelosi’s leadership – will have on women if health care premiums rise.
“Talk is cheap,” said Andrew Bozek, spokeswoman for the National Republican Congressional Committee. “When you look at what the Democrats have actually done to women in this economy, versus what they’re promising – it’s a stark contrast. Obamacare’s litany of broken promises is a perfect example of how their agenda has hurt women and their families.”
