HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Vice Chair Joyce Haas released the following statement regarding President Obama’s record on women, in light of recent controversial comments made by Democratic National Committee adviser Hilary Rosen, who claimed that Ann Romney, a mother of five, has “never worked a day in her life”:
“As a woman and a mother, I am highly offended by DNC advisor Hilary Rosen’s deplorable comments. Being a mother is a full-time job, and any claim to the contrary is simply untrue. Quite frankly, these comments speak volumes to the Democrats’ true feelings about America’s hard-working women,” Vice-Chair Haas said.
Regarding President Obama’s record on women, Haas stated the following: “Pennsylvania women care about issues like jobs and the economy, and the reality is that past few years under President Obama have been devastating for women. Since he took office, the number of employed women has decreased by 683,000, and many more women have given up looking for work altogether. What’s more hypocritical is that in President Obama’s White House, women are paid less than men. According to figures from last year, the median salary for female employees on the White House staff is 18 percent less than that of their male counterparts.”
Haas continued: “If there’s a war on women in America, it’s being waged from the White House.”
