Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus had this to say recently about the discussions about the GOP’s “war on women:”

If the Democrats said we had a war on caterpillars and every mainstream media outlet talked about the fact that Republicans have a war on caterpillars, then we’d have problems with caterpillars. It’s a fiction.

I love how these Republican tactics to try to dismiss this conversation as silly further trivialize the issues that women care about and keep digging themselves deeper into this hole of voter abandonment.

While we’re at it, here are a few examples of just how nonfictional this situation is.

The Justice Department obeyed a federal appeals court’s order Thursday in a legal and political spat over the health care law championed by President Barack Obama.

Administration lawyers filed a three-page, single-spaced letter to the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which is hearing a challenge to the health care law.

The letter affirmed the government’s stance that federal courts have the authority to decide the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.
