Karen Finney posted this last night at Facebook. Rep. Issa is abusing his power as committee chair while simultaneously abdicating true leadership with this unfair decision. Here is Karen’s post.
Issa is refusing to hear from even one woman (or even a man) who could speak to the impact denying coverage for contraceptives has on women across our country. This abuse of power cant stand – in America both sides of an issue should be heard in the people’s house! Call Issa’s office now! 202-225-3906.

Cummings Asks Issa to Reconsider and Let Witness Testify on Behalf of Women Across the Country
Washington, DC (Feb. 15, 2012)—Today, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent a letter to Chairman Darrell Issa objecting to his refusal to allow a minority witness to testify at tomorrow’s Committee hearing about the interests of millions of American women seeking safe and affordable coverage for basic preventive health care, including contraception. The hearing is entitled “Lines Crossed: Separation of Church and State. Has the Obama Administration Trampled on Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Conscience?”
Thank you, Karen, for leading the way on this important issue!
