Wasserman Schultz Argues Shutdown Resulted from Not Enough Women in Washington

‘A lot of people think... that if the women were running this negotiation right now, it would have been resolved a long time ago’

BLITZER: "A lot of people think, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, that if the women were running this negotiation right now, it would have been resolved a long time ago. How do you feel about what we just heard from Congressman Wagner -get more women involved in this process and you can make a deal?"

WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: "There's no question, the women of the House and the Republicans and Democrats, we talk all the time. You know, privately on the floor about how if you just put us in a room, women are such consensus builders and are so committed to make sure we get to yes and are not quite as focused on you know, the winners and losers aspect of negotiation that it's -- it warms my heart that there were a bunch of women in the room with the president and vice president last night."
