Women fell two votes short on Wednesday to coming closer to getting paid the same as men for the same work. Senate Republicans decided that equal pay for women should not even be considered, as they blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act from moving to the floor.
It goes downhill from there.
I guess no one expects The Nation to give even the appearance of impartiality; in fact, they're pretty upfront about their biases. But as the old saying goes, you're entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts.
When someone can give me some evidence that women are not paid the same as men for the same work, perhaps I'll listen. When someone can show me that the two major federal gender discrimination laws already on the books are not working, perhaps I'll listen. When someone can show me that the recent study that shows that overall pay for women is slightly less than for men because of choices women make (lower paying fields like social work, more part-time work, more time out of the workforce to raise families), then perhaps I'll listen.
Until then, I'm not buying into the victimhood, gender warfare, and political shenanigans, and neither is this woman.
