When Ryan writes the budget, it's NO GIRLS ALLOWED (except as victims)

When the Ryan/Republican Budget Club gets together, it's NO GIRLS ALLOWED:

 Bloomberg News:

During a recent trip to New York, Democratic Senators Mary Landrieu and Patty Murray lamented one aspect of the U.S. deficit talks that they say may cloud the outcome: No women lawmakers have been at the table.

 

It’s a concern shared by some female colleagues, who say programs that disproportionately serve women and children are at risk in negotiations over where to cut federal spending. Several of the programs were targeted by Representative Paul Ryan in a budget that passed the U.S. House in April and which he and many other Republicans see as a road map for shrinking the government.

 It's been called Ryan's war on women.
