With 51% of the voters being female, and subject to any law, and only they are subject to it, that infringes on reproduction rights, they sent in the Religious Right's Goon squad.

 Issa, you have to be one of the most clueless and inept of men.  Thanks for nothing. 

To quote the Think Progress HEALTH site:

"The House Committee On Oversight and Government Reform held a hearing yesterday on the Obama administration’s now-revised ruling that all employers must cover contraception in their employee health insurance policies, including some religiously-affiliated ones.
The hearing succeeding in becoming one of the more bizarre and obtuse displays in recent political theater. Highlights included:
– Committee Chairman Darrell Issa’s (R-CA) use of self-aggrandizing posters of Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, and Mahatma Gandhi.
– The committee’s failure to include even one woman as a witness in their first panel.
– The ominous insistence that an honest disagreement over a health policy that’s already followed without complaint in multiple states and enjoys wide-spread support is a threat to fundamental American principles and liberties.
– A long and rambling speech comparing a fictional “national pork mandate” to important women’s health drugs."
