'Equal Pay' Fails in Senate

More Democrat election shenanigans.

Apr. 10, 2014

Senate Republicans successfully blocked so-called “equal pay” legislation that’s a key part of Democrats’ election strategy of class and sex warfare. Democrats claim that women are paid less than men (they may be at the White House, anyway), but as we wrote Wednesday, that’s largely a bogus claim. Naturally, the facts don’t stop Democrats from pushing for a federal “solution” to the “problem.” Along with their proposed minimum wage hike, Democrats’ policies will only slow economic growth further for everyone. As Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “[W]hen it comes to American women over all, what we’ve seen over the past five and a half years is less income and more poverty. That’s the story Senate Democrats don’t want to talk about.”
