    Just joking. They still have no clue.

    Paycheck Fairness Act Fails Senate Vote

    WASHINGTON -- Senate Republicans on Tuesday blocked a bill that would have ensured women are paid the same amount as their male counterparts.

    The Senate failed to secure the 60 votes needed to advance the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would have required employers to demonstrate that any salary differences between men and women doing the same work are not gender-related. The bill also would have prohibited employers from retaliating against employees who share salary information with their co-workers, and would have required the Labor Department to increase its outreach to employers to help eliminate pay disparities.

    The final vote was 52-47, with all Republicans opposing the bill. That included female Sens. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Susan Collins (Maine), Kay Bailey Hutchison (Texas), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Olympia Snowe (Maine).

    "When the fairly recalculate how they get the discrepancy numbers, perhaps you may have something. Additionally, you need to promote legislation that allows for people who work longer hours, have seniority and go the extra mile to be paid more. Its called recognition and it is used to promote morale among the work force. Get to that point, and I'd support an equal paycheck law. But to pay slackers the same I make isn't going to cut it in My book.

    usually they pass laws and then, in a strong show of bipartisanship, they exempt Congress from the law.

    Wasn't that what the much lauded Lilly Ledbetter Act was supposed to do? Obama's desperation is showing. He's already pandered this issue once.
