    Paycheck Fairness Act Fails Senate Vote

    The law was passed - what ? - fifty years ago but the pubs still won't vote for equal pay for women.

    But, they will LIE when they say there is no War On Women.

    It's almost astounding what apocrypha you libs will believe.

    Women with the same job and resume get the same pay.

    It is the Liberal agenda to divide groups which push this nonsense.

    And...anyone with a brain...that leaves you out...would see the flaw in your tale of woe:

    If women got 76% of what men make for the same job....or whatever number you make up, ...then an employer would be nuts not to hire all women and save 24% of his overhead.


    Get it?


    Go on to your next 'the sky is falling' story....

    No big surprise.

    It's a way to strangle the Lilly Ledbetter law.

    How the heck can you even know you aren't getting equal pay if there's absolutely no way to discover what people in your pay grade are making?

    Meanwhile Obama pays all the women in his Government less. As evidenced by records already released

    That's not so.

    The thinking is that there are already laws in place for equality.

    Women have to earn their way just like men do, and passing a law to sidestep competence makes for a very bad law that will not pass muster before the Supreme Court.

    To make a long story short, I hear there's a sale on crow and you'll be eating some if you keep passing laws the Supreme Court shows are unconstitutional.

    Get a life, Mr. Luddly. :rolleyes:

    Discrimination based on sex is already against the law.

    Passing a silly law during silly season simply doesn't add up.

    Women can already sue the powers that be if they are not getting equal pay for equal work. It's their right, and the law is on their side if they are truly receiving discriminatory pay for doing the same tasks as well as their male counterparts.

    Smarmy little worm Rand Paul just makes my skin crawl and I'm, not at all surprised at what he says about women getting equal pay ... That women are nothing more than a loaf of bread.

    Rand Paul Compares Paycheck Fairness To Soviet Politburo

    "Three hundred million people get to vote everyday on what you should be paid or what the price of goods are," Paul told reporters on Capitol Hill. "In the Soviet Union, the Politburo decided the price of bread, and they either had no bread or too much bread. So setting prices or wages by the government is always a bad idea."

    Then, an outright lie and then tries to make it about one's ability to do a job.

    The R's still have the ability to make me gasp in shock and disbelief. Even so, its still shocking that they're now going to try to say that women can't do a job as well as a man.

    How many times do we have to fight the same battles. And, what's next? Will they try to take the right to vote away from blacks and women? Wouldn't surprise me a bit.
