    Of the five senators who participated in Wednesday’s press conference—Barbara Mikulski (D., Md.), Patty Murray (D., Wash.), Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.), Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) and Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.)—three pay their female staff members significantly less than male staffers.

    Murray, who has repeatedly accused Republicans of waging a “war a women,” is one of the worst offenders. Female members of Murray’s staff made about $21,000 less per year than male staffers in 2011, a difference of 35.2 percent.

    Other notable Senators whose “gender pay gap” was larger than 23 percent:

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.)—47.6 percent
    Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D., N.M.)—40 percent
    Sen. Jon Tester (D., Mont.)—34.2 percent
    Sen. Ben Cardin (D., Md.)—31.5 percent
    Sen. Tom Carper (D., Del.)—30.4 percent
    Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.)–29.7 percent
    Sen. Kent Conrad (D., N.D.)–29.2 percent
    Sen. Bill Nelson (D., Fla.)—26.5 percent
    Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore)—26.4 percent
    Sen. Tom Harkin (D., Iowa)—23.2 percen

    Maybe it's the positions that are held by men versus women. The higher positions (ala chief advisors positions) in the Washington Beltway are and have been dominated by men and this has been the environment there from day one. The women working in Washington haven't climbed that ladder yet.
    But, it's still hypocrisy by the Dems as they have kept the status quo.

    Maybe women make less in this country because they get more time off and work fewer hours. No way though ... not possible.

    Actually the Dems "Do as I say and not as I do"..."talk the talk..but not the walk" is their M.O.!
    Hypocrisy starting with Obama piously telling us "I'm my brother's keeper" while his lives in a $12/yr hut!
    Hypocrisy with Obama telling people to stay away from Las Vegas.. while his wife visits!

    I don't ever expect die hard kool aid dems to agree.. NONE of my contributions are for them!
    I want those "independents" that voted for Obama because they feared being called "racists" to understand the independents that voted for Obama's their lower esteem of themselves has the country in this precarious position!
    These independents NEED in upcoming vote more with the FACTS and head and less with perceptions and what makes them FEEL good!
