House Republicans Think They Won a Mandate to Block Violence Against Women Act

Sahil Kapur reports that House Republicans do not seem to have gotten the message women voters sent them in the election:

If Republicans have been chastened by losing the women’s vote last week by the widest margin in modern history, they have a funny way of showing it.

House GOP leaders aren’t yielding to a bipartisan coalition of Senate leaders demanding they extend the protections of the Violence Against Women Act — an anti-domestic abuse bill that was first passed with broad support in 1994 but hit a brick wall of Republican opposition earlier this year.
