Lawmakers mark Women’s Equality Day

Women's Equality DayVarious lawmakers marked Women's Equality Day on Saturday, celebrating women's achievements and the passage of the 19th Amendment, which allowed women to vote.

House lawmakers took the opportunity to push for new legislation providing services for working families, with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) proposing the House pass a bill tackling childcare costs for working parents.

TVNL Comment:  Equality?  Thirteen white, Christian, old men secretly drew up a GOP health care bill that denied women the right to control their own reproductive health.  Dozens of states across the nation, largely governed by GOP legislatures and governors, have denied basic health care to millions of women.  Women still earn less than men for the same work.  Where, in hell, is the equality?

Trump Job Approval Rating Now at 34%, New Low

Trump sad over low ratingsPresident Donald Trump's job approval rating in Gallup Daily tracking is at 34% for the three-day period from Friday through Sunday -- by one point the lowest of his administration so far.
