Really it's hard to know where the Republican Party ends and the Tea Party begins.
Every woman needs to know the facts. And the fact is, when it comes to breast cancer, every woman is at risk.
Unfortunately, the Republican leadership in the House right now seems to have been strangled by the tea party.
We do not need to end Medicare. We don't need to throw people who are younger than 55 years old to the wolves which is what we do.
We can never, ever say it enough: every woman - especially every young woman-has to take charge of her health... and do what's right for her!
We have to change course. And we have to do so now. That is why I worked with my colleagues in Washington to pass the Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
All too often in tough economic times, it is the environment that gets left on the cutting room floors of Congress as everyone scraps for limited federal dollars.
If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side, we would be driving foreign cars. They would have let the auto industry in America go down the tubes.
People used to say everyone knows someone who's had breast cancer. In the past few weeks, I've learned something else: Everyone has someone close to them who has had breast cancer.
The fact is, when it comes to economic leadership, the Republicans have nothing to brag about. This isn't what the American people want. They want to see progress that works for them.
