The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released a new video today showcasing Republican Leader Eric Cantor and the Tea Party Republicans' real approach to women: a never-ending war to turn back the clock on women's rights. Millions of women have been left out in the cold by Tea Party House Republicans and Republican Leader Eric Cantor, who refuse to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act.

As the Senate is planning to again reauthorize VAWA this week, Republican Leader Cantor gave a speech today designed to showcase the party's "softer" side. Cantor is widely reported to be responsible for blocking the bipartisan Violence Against Women Act, which protects all women and provides critical funding to protect women from domestic abuse.

UPDATE via Think Progress:

Eight Senators on Monday voted not to consider the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, a bill that protects victims of domestic violence. The Senators who voted against moving to debate on the bill were: Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), Tim Scott (R-SC), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Mike Johanns (R-NE), Rand Paul (R-KY), Pat Roberts (R-KS), and James Risch (R-ID).

    Rubio said he wanted to be the best Senator Florida ever had. Look at his record folks. He's collared by the 1% and did not fight for the Dream Act, voted against VAWA, the Disabilities Treaty, voted against jobs bills and more. Whath this shill like a hawk.
