Former DNC Chairman Howard Dean says Republicans hate women for thinking “insurance should actually pay birth control.”
“See, here’s what the big problem is. You’re right about 40 and 50-year-olds, and even 35-year-olds. But under 35, even though they have a fiscal stake in trying to get the country back in order, this party, the Republican party, is gay-bashing, Muslim-bashing, Latino-bashing, immigrant-bashing, women-bashing every day. And so the young — young people are just not going to vote for Romney, because they’re not going to — they think insurance should actually pay for birth control, they don’t — their friends are gay, Muslim, Latino, and so forth and so on. They’re sick of this stuff. They hate this kind of politics. So the Republicans are playing to a very, very narrow audience and they just made it a lot worse in this primary,” Dean said on MSNBC.
