ADVISORY: Elizabeth Warren Joins CAP Action to Discuss the Romney-Ryan Plan’s Impact on Women

Washington, D.C. – On Tuesday, August 21, in Gov. Mitt Romney’s home state of Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, a consumer advocate and nationally recognized expert on economic issues, will join the Center for American Progress Action Fund for a news conference releasing a new paper that explains how Gov. Romney’s policies are bad for women in Massachusetts and across the nation.  Warren along with CAP Action’s Tara McGuinness and Massachusetts State Rep. Kathi-Anne Reinstein, will discuss the real impacts of Gov. Romney’s health, reproductive rights, and economic proposals—policies that would inevitably take women backward.

The speakers will address what Gov. Romney’s pledge to repeal Obamacare will cost women, and what a Romney-Ryan administration would mean for women’s economic independence.  The press conference is part of “Romney University,” a series of events and paper releases aimed at providing influential policy and opinion makers inside the Beltway and beyond with all they need to know about Gov. Romney’s policy proposals.
