Republicans Lie to Women. Period.
This would be Mitch McConnell (R-KY) today:
McConnell calls GOP’s ‘war on women’ a ‘manufactured’ issue
“Talk about a manufactured issue,” McConnell said in an interview with local Louisville, Ky., radio station WHAS on Monday.
He said his female Republican colleagues in the Senate would agree with him on that.
“There is no issue. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison [(Texas)] and Kelly Ayotte from New Hampshire and Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe from Maine, I think, would be the first to say — and Lisa Murkowski from Alaska — ‘We don’t see any evidence of this.’ “
Nothing there ladies. Nothing at all.
Meanwhile, this would be Scott Walker and the Republicans in Wisconsin on Thursday:
A Wisconsin law that made it easier for victims of wage discrimination to have their day in court was repealed on Thursday, after Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) quietly signed the bill.
The 2009 Equal Pay Enforcement Act was meant to deter employers from discriminating against certain groups by giving workers more avenues via which to press charges. Among other provisions, it allows individuals to plead their cases in the less costly, more accessible state circuit court system, rather than just in federal court.
In November, the state Senate approved SB 202, which rolled back this provision. On February, the Assembly did the same. Both were party-line votes in Republican-controlled chambers.
In essence, Republicans don’t want women to be paid the same amount as men for the same job. Why? Because Republicans think women should be folding laundry; men are taking care of them (gag): Money is More Important for Men.
So Mitch. What was that you were sayin’? Your lie about there not being a Republican attack on women is an attack unto itself.
