Democrats tore into House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa for preventing women from testifying before a hearing examining the Obama administration’s new regulation requiring employers and insurers to provide contraception coverage to their employees. Republicans oppose the administration’s rule and have sponsored legislation that would allow employers to limit the availability of birth control to women.
Issa dismissed the Democrats’ woman witness as a “college student” who does not “have the appropriate credentials” to testify before his committee.
