The Liberal Myth That Will Not Die

Can you imagine a world wherein liberals would tell the truth when promoting their views and policies?  I can't, either, because no one could possibly take them seriously then:
Just in time for the 50th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act comes the publication of a new book by American Enterprise Institute scholar Christina Hoff Sommers, Freedom Feminism: Its Surprising History and Why It Matters Today.
President Obama should read this book. Last week in the Rose Garden, at an event celebrating the Equal Pay Act, he once again repeated the myth that women earn 77 cents on a man's dollar.

"The day that the bill was signed into law, women earned 59 cents for every dollar a man earned on average. Today, it's about 77 cents," the president said. "Over the course of her career, a working woman with a college degree will earn on average hundreds of thousands of dollars less than a man who does the same work. "

Can someone please point to one job where a woman is paid less than a man simply because she is a woman? McDonalds? WalMart? Macys? Lawyers? Doctors? Pilots? Anyone? Bueller, Bueller? The reason woman make less is that they work less. Not per day, but over their lifetime. Woman take maternity, etc., which creates a disparity. It's not unfair or wrong...it's just the way it is.
