Sandra Fluke: Let’s get back to policy talk


Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student Rush Limbaugh verbally attacked on the airwaves, joined The Last Word on Wednesday. She told msnbc’s Lawrence O’Donnell her policy points on health care coverage for contraception have been lost in the noise of the Limbaugh firestorm.

And she’s anxious to get back to more important topics, like discussing “how this regulation will give American women affordable access to a basic health care need that they have” instead of dwelling on Rush Limbaugh’s toxicity.

“I was always taught to stand up for others and what I believed in regardless of whether or not it was popular,” said Fluke. She credited her “relentlessly wonky” approach as giving her the ability to move on gracefully and push this issue forward.
