    Washington (CNN) - House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi told a summit of female activists she believes Republicans are engaged in a war on women and women's rights.
    "There is actually a war on women," the minority leader told several hundred activists attending the Women Money Power Summit sponsored by the Feminist Majority Foundation. "Abortion is one issue but contraception and family planning and birth control are opposed by this crowd too. Understand what is at risk here," Pelosi said, referring to proposals promoted by the new House Republican leadership.

    Pelosi's criticism echoes warnings by other progressive activists who argue the new House Republican leadership's budget cuts disproportionally target programs for women's health and low-incomes women's services.

    Pelosi identified three bills pending before Congress which she said take aim at women. One, HR-3, would restrict women's access to abortion and eliminate federal funds for abortion in all circumstances. A second, the stop gap spending measure passed Thursday by the House, would eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, including for health checks for sexually transmitted diseases. And the third, the House Republicans' proposed budget for next year, would completely overhaul Medicare and Medicaid. Pelosi argued that proposal will end Medicare altogether.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    The same Nazi Pisslosi that claimed 6 million seniors would be starved?

    Even the Washington Compost called her on that one...
    An assertion by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., that budget cuts to a Department of Health and Human Services program that provides food to the elderly will deprive 6 million seniors of meals is absurd. First off, only 2.6 million seniors receive such meals, The Washington Post reported in fact-checking the claim.

    Pelosi made the claim about the Administration on Aging program this week. She said that GOP budget proposals would cut 6 million homebound seniors from the program and that Democratic proposals would leave 3 million seniors hungry. The meals programs costs about $818 million a year and House proposals would cut $65 million from the approximately $2.4 billion HHS budget, the Post said.

    Pelosi staff explained she meant meals, not people, despite using the word seniors or people three times. They also maintained that HHS “informally indicated” to Pelosi that programs that would likely be cut if quick savings were needed were senior nutrition programs and senior centers, the Post said, labeling the assumption a “wild guess.”

    “In a city with overheated rhetoric, Pelosi’s statement ranks high on this year’s list of bloviated bluster. It’s bad enough that she repeatedly mixed up 6 million meals and 6 million people — and made no effort to correct the record after her statement was reported in the media. But the figure she used appears to have been invented itself, with little basis in fact,” the Post concluded.

    There is a war on women and the feminists are the ones waging it.
