DNC Chair Statement on Tonight’s GOP Debates
August 7, 2015
Washington, DC – DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement on tonight’s GOP debates:
“During both debates today, we saw more of the out of date and out of touch policies that we’re used to seeing from these Republican candidates. Among the biggest losers of tonight’s debate were American women, who were attacked at every turn. We failed to hear any solutions for income inequality, and not even a mention of college affordability, equal pay, raising the minimum wage, or the Voting Rights Act on its fiftieth anniversary.
“Today’s Republican presidential candidates proved that the GOP is solely focused on taking us backwards with policies that cut taxes for the wealthy and leave the middle class behind.
“Tonight, Americans are going to ask themselves, which one of the candidates on that stage will look out for me? The answer is clear: not a single one of them.”
