The debate about “equal pay” ramped up even more as the U.S. women’s soccer team won the World Cup in France earlier this month. A couple of Democrat senators are taking that particular baton and running with it:

Here’s what part of their letter said:

It staggers the imagination.

We’re pretty sure any actual explanation will be pretty much meaningless to Klobuchar, Rosen and many others who have a narrative to push.
