It is time for the Democrats to fight for women. Force open debate in the Senate. Expose the misogyny that permeates the Republican party.

It is time for the Democrats to stand up and fight for women. The time for words and promises is over. This is an election year. People want action and they will vote for action. The Women's Health Protection Act appears doomed to failure because it does not have a 60% supermajority to overcome a filibuster. The Democrats do not want to fight. They keep wanting to roll over in this and blame the Supreme Court or state governments. In short, it does not have the intestinal fortitude to fight. 

The dissolution of the Democratic party is at hand if it does not fight. Fighting is not fearing a filibuster.  It is changing the debate rules to require in-person debate on the bill and forcing the debate to remain on topic. Let us have an unlimited debate. Let us have the Republicans get up and tell the nation why they think women's health should not be protected. While we are at it, let us do the same for a new Equal Rights Amendment. Now is the time to strike while the issue is hottest. Introduce this on the day the Supreme Court makes its official decision on abortion.

People vote for action. The Republicans, despite Trump, still took action and stacked the court. Now is the time for Democrats to put up or shut up.
