    OBAMA WHITE HOUSE PAYS WOMEN LESS THAN MEN, RECORDS SHOW'

    Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show.

    According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).

    The Obama campaign on Wednesday lashed out at presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney for his failure to immediately endorse the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, a controversial law enacted in 2009 that made it easier to file discrimination lawsuits.'

    Lily Ledbetter is equal pay for equal work. Are the work equivalents the same by gender in the WH? I doubt it.

    You saying women are not getting better or the same positions? Why is the WH giving women lesser jobs?

    Oh I'm sure Michelle Obama will be along any minute to dispute this. This kind of thing couldn't happen in HER White House now could it? I mean... she's finally PROUD of America... :eusa_eh:

    Jeez...leave it to some dumbass CON to post a story trying to make Obama look bad when his side looks even WORSE by far....

    Who signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act? You know the LAW that prohibits paying different for the same work?
    Was it George W. Bush and the Republicans in congress?

    Nope.
    Read it and weep.
    S.181: Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 - OpenCongress Wiki


    Gee, it appears republicans not only didn't pass it themselves, but voted against this bill almost unanimously when it came up again under the democratic congress 2006 session.
    So please, tell us all about what a monster Obama is on this issue when conservatives OBVIOUSLY don't think women deserve to earn the same for the same work. Your party's votes tell the whole story.

    He hates on women and thinks they are inferior to the menfolk.

    So Obama signs the bill and doesn't follow it? Pretty hypocritical.

    Take a look at the Cabinet. How many women? That might help you understand which gender has the higher paying positions in the WH.
