Hilary Rosen had said Ann Romney 'has never worked a day in her life'

Hilary Rosen, who regularly appears on various CNN programs giving a Democratic perspective, is under fire for saying this week that the wife of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney had 'never worked a day in her life.'

She said Wednesday (11 April)  that Romney was unqualified to speak about the kinds of economic issues facing women in America because his knowledge of women's issues comes from his wife, Ann Romney, the mother of their five sons, who had never had to struggle financially.
