Reader Input: Women: Remember McClintock’s stand

-A +A

Congress has finally approved the Violence Against Women Act which has been a long time in coming. Of course, our Rep. Tom McClintock joined with five other Republican representatives in voting no. But then he always seems to vote no on everything.
Budget constraints, he says. But there was no budget thought when he voted for going to war.
Republicans need to remember that women have a long memory. We helped to elect Barack Obama and got rid of those candidates who revealed their misogynistic views on women.  
I would hope that our representative shows some compassion in the future and not look at every issue as dollars and cents. And I would hope that the women of Placer County remember his shameful vote.
