    The glaring shortcoming in those stats is pointed out in that article by that liberal feminist I linked.
    You must have skimmed over that?
    You are referring to microeconomic data that possesses qualitative properties. You are welcome to browse the rather numerous econometric research that confirms the problem.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Quick question for anyone willing to answer (and do a little research):

    Do male or female nurses get paid more?

    Well we all know why that is- it polls well.
    I just would expect the Presisent of th eUA to rise above this petty nonsense.

    Oh and this howler.
    You know, today, women make up about half our workforce, but they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, itís an embarrassment.

    Women deserve equal pay for equal work.


    This is why Obama sickens me. This stat is COMPLETe BS and worse, he knows it. Yet he still dishes it out.

    Hey, you know-gotta stop that 'war om women' (gag)
    Got any evidence that it is false?

    Irrelevant question. Better question- do male or female nurses working for the same employer with the exact same education and exact same work history get paid more?
    Get back to me when you can answer THAT relevant question .

    We can also look at the comparison between female and male CEO's.

    Why do you care what a private company pays its CEO's and how does their pay affect you and your family? No one forced anyone to take a job in the private sector and they knew going in what the pay scale was going to be. All I see from people today is jealousy and making a non issue even more of one.

    More irrelevant babble.
    Equivalent to saying Lebron makes more money than Kyle Korver, thus-racism.

    In order forthis to be within 10 miles of relevant, you would have to show that women CEO's with the same resume of performance make less than men at the same company. Which, of course, would be impossible.

    I agree that the 77 cents on the dollar icon is closer to good advertising than it is to rigorous statistics.

    However it is advertising a legitimate problem that requires, unfortunately, government intervention to fix, at least in our lifetimes. Business could choose to fix it without intervention, but their one principle, make more money, regardless of the cost to others, prevents it.
