"A Man's Brain"

Ken Fredette, the GOP House Leader in Maine, said he and his GOP caucus opposed expanding health care to 60,000 people because he has “a man’s brain” — his notion that someone like me, a (gasp!) woman, couldn’t understand the issue because a woman's brain is different. So Diane Russell called him out and demanded he apologize since “...this is 2013, not 1813!”

To his credit, he did apologize. But he didn’t reverse his position on Medicaid expansion in Maine, a vitally important issue that could mean life and death for over 60,000 people.
