The Senate Democratic women are willing to shut down government over women's health.

We are not going to throw women under the bus to give them an agreement to keep this government open," Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) said during a press conference at the Capitol.

"We are determined to draw the line in the sand," Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) added. "There are moments when you must do that, and this is one of those moments."

...Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) said Republicans "won't budge unless their social agenda is jammed through Congress."

"This is not a budget impasse on fiscal issues," Cantwell said.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) took that criticism a step further.

"It's an opportunity for the right wing in the House to really sock it to women," said the usually demure Feinstein. "I don't usually use this language, but I really believe this is true."


Good for them, but just a word of warning for all our Dem negotiators: what digby says: saving women's healthcare funding is crucial, but giving on the rest of the budget won't be a win. The cuts Dems have already capitulated to in following the Republicans down the rabbit hole are far enough.

Furthermore, what Atrios sez:

A Big thank you to my Senator, Gillibrand and all the women in the Senate!

1. Can't believe it's working. A freeper wrote that women are the biggest mass murderers in history.
My jaw hit my chest. These assholes hate women, fuck them.

3. Chuck Todd twitter: the two parties are VERY close to "resolving" the issue
According to aides on both sides of the talks, the two parties are VERY close to "resolving" the Planned Parenthood issue. May be "tabled"
