It talks resume today congress about to go into a meeting in about ten minutes.
But before she goes to that meeting to our caucus.
Washington congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers the vice chairwoman of the House Republican Conference joins us right now congresswoman.
In your estimation.
Have won the first of for the first time in years.
Won the women's vote this time.
Why did day.
Well the reason that Republicans won the women's vote is because women all across this country -- where President Obama was taking the country a -- they didn't support whether it was.
Health Care Reform.
That that he move forward recognizing that women make 85% of the health care decisions in our homes.
They didn't like the idea of the federal government getting in the way of them -- -- -- health care decisions women also start to lot of three new businesses.
And at a time when his -- it's harder and harder to start a business the federal government is making it more difficult I believe that women recognize.
That the federal government.
Two -- and is part of the problem rather than being part of the solution and the.
And they do the right and then you can also that this data also -- it -- they've managed 83% about.
Come whether they make it -- manage it there controller that.
I also think it's important to you to every last -- to the other side chairman of the DNC -- congresswoman around right.
Talk about the war on women.
I it's it is completely offensive what Debbie Wasserman Schultz has to say.
The Republicans and -- elected a record number of women -- here to the house.
And their their dynamic women from all different walks of life we have we have a doctor we have nurses we have farmers we have small business owners.
And they really represent the best of what America has to offer and I believe that they're gonna be a critical part of the solution as we move forward at a time when.
America doesn't trust.
-- -- are seen as being more trustworthy honest right willing to solve difficult problems.
And that that essentially she had just the opposite opinion.
-- president so approval among women leaves a lot to you must be worried in June 2011.
It's 40% of the vote in June 2009.
Of the vote so that's where might the -- -- -- this election might be.
In the big picture of man and woman American.
Concerned about where we'll go in this with these did -- -- deadlock.
This talk about -- play and see that the Republicans could be putting forward today because we seemed entrenched.
Republic as the Democrats do in their current status -- you know.
I honestly don't know about a plan -- what I do know is that the Republicans very much want to be a part of the solution.
We also believe that it it has to include a gain changer we have to change the way.
Government spends money and I'm very disappointed that President Obama took the -- budget amendment off the table I'm disappointed that he took the repeal of health care off the table.
I hope that we can start building more support for addressing those issues and we're gonna be moving forward for example on the balance budget amendment.
Over the next couple of weeks in the house I and the senate I believe that that is a part of the solution.
-- -- -- -- Right guys congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers thanks so much -- -- you -- caucus in about two minutes.
And we have going to have a meeting of the White House amongst eight leaders on both sides in the president.
At 345 today in the lead every day to they get a deal by August 2 or the 22 in July thanks so much.
