#PaycheckFairness hijacked: Reid, Obama tweet about ‘paycheck fairness’ while Dems pay female staffers less

Once again, Senator Reid and other Democrats are taking to Twitter to relentlessly use women, and to push agenda-driven lies.

Lady parts squirrel!

President Obama jumps into the mix, too. Of course, focusing on himself.

All about Obama!

More hypocrites jump in with lies and hypocrisy to use women as pawns.

Happy warriors point out the glaring hypocrisy: What about your own female staffers, Democrats?

You see, while the old pay gap myth has been  put to rest time and time again, it does exist in some places. Namely, Democrat offices.

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.

That is well above the 23 percent gap that Democrats claim exists between male and female workers nationwide.


Double whoops!

Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) paid men $13,063 more, a difference of 23 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 percent

That’s right. Female Obama staffers are paid less as well.

His binders full of women aren’t as valuable as his binders full of men.

Paycheck fairness? Start in your own house, Democrats.


Using women: Senator Reid’s lack of self-awareness, shame are showing with Paycheck Fairness Act lies

Paycheck Fairness Act fails; President Obama, Democrats continue lying and using women

With laser-like focus on Romney’s ‘binders full of women,’ Obama ignores White House pay gap

Hypocrisy alert: Sen. Ben Cardin touts ‘paycheck fairness’

Do as they say, not as they do: Senate Democrats push Paycheck Fairness Act, pay female staffers less

Democrats use women as pawns; Conservatives fight back on Paycheck Fairness Act, equal pay nonsense

Valerie Jarrett joins Twitter, immediately starts equal pay lie pushing

    Patty Murray, go to Cuba and leave us alone, and take the rest of Obama’s administration with you.

    How exactly does the media allow this? I mean we all know they are tilted well to the left, but you would think that some of them would have the integrity to call out their own side.

    Of course, that would mean that they actually cared about women, not just advancing their tired war-on-women-by-mean-old-white-guy-republicans meme

      I quit asking questions like this about oh….4 years ago. When you have sold your soul to the devil, you don’t question his motives….

    Hypocritical, that’s just the way the Democrats roll.

    “Paycheck fairness”?

    “Fairness” is the free market compensating you in proportion to the value your skills bring a business free of coercive manipulation of that market.

    Don’t like how much you are paid? Demand a raise. If your employer refuses, go find another that will pay you what you believe you are worth. Can’t find one willing to pay you that much, start your own business and prove that your skills are equal to your compensation demands.

    It really is that simple.

    The “23% less” number is total BS, by the way. Women with the same years of experience as their male counterparts working the same hours in the same job positions actually earn slightly more than their male counterparts on average.

    The “77%” statistic used has a sample skewed by women who take time off from the workforce for motherhood, and who are in salaried positions (and therefore not paid by the hour) but work fewer hours (or more to the point, less overtime) than their male counterparts due to family concerns.

      Please tell us where that information came from. If it was from a liberal pundit, that doesn’t count.

    23 cents less? WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?!?

    • lainer51

      none at all, as long as the Democraps get credit for “fairness to women” B.S.

    “Barack Obama pays female staffers less than male staffers”

    Obama has female staffers?

    just another in a long list of resume requirements to be a democratic member of the house, senate or even president, keep putting out lies and looking the other way when it pertains to you or better yet blame someone else

  • JCRocks

    Same work, same hours, same responsibility then that should equal same pay. No problem with that. But quit lying with misleading statistics that compare apples to oranges.

  • Shawn

    You know what kind of paycheck fairness I want, is that 40 bucks you keep taking out of my wife’s paycheck every 2 weeks you losers

    • Raye09

      That would be real paycheck fairness, and I support that.

  • Raye09

    Look at the bright side, at least they get free contraception and abortions. Who needs money when you have the pill?
    All joking aside this is hilarious, considering it’s the same people who complain about the non-existant pay gap.
