MSNBC's Finney: Romney-Ryan Plan Would Kill Women By Their Mid-30s

MSNBC political analyst Karen Finney kicked horrific tales of the so-called GOP war on women into high gear on Friday's Martin Bashir show.

In a segment about the Obama campaign's portrait of a fictional woman's life under his leadership versus the Republican presidential candidate's, Finney said, "Here’s what life under the Romney-Ryan plan would be like for Julia...She’d be in the grave by her mid-30s" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

As this deliciously absurd segment about the Julia campaign with nothing but liberal shills involved mercifully drew to a close, Finney said, "I would love to see the DNC or somebody follow up with a 'Here’s what life under the Romney-Ryan plan would be like for Julia.'"

Bashir started laughing like she said the funniest thing he'd ever heard.

Finney continued, "She’d be in the grave by her mid-30s I can almost assure you.”

Georgetown University’s Michael Eric Dyson chimed in, “Yeah, it would be falling off the edge of the cliff like on The Price is Right.”

So now Republican policies are going to kill women before they hit the age of 40.

And MSNBC considers itself to be a "news network."
