    Well, then feel free to post a link to all the sucessful complaints in NH.

    And you are right, he is a republican. I made an assumption he was a D and was wrong.

    No wonder then that some grow up to be politicians capable only if infantile reasoning.
    We stopped shooting our politicians for voicing their important opinions here in NH sometime around 1798.
    In light of this maybe it is time to start the practice again and while at it import some doctors so this will not happen again.

    I don't have to rely upon court cases filed in NH (which has very high levels of burden to bring) to know whether gender pay discrimination exists or not in NH.

    My level of denial is not that great.

    But one can agree with facts, regardless of position.

    He is a GOP NH House member, if you don't care....why are you here?
    Because the thread title said GOP lawmaker...it didn't say "GOP state lawmaker". Once I was here, I commented. It's not like I saw a state senator said something stupid and decided to make a thread about it.

    It is completely incorrect in the CONTEXT OF THE LEGISLATION HE IS DEBATING. Again, it is stupid to argue that equal pay for equal work is not needed....be cause men do "more risky work", or because women are not as motivated.
    It is possible to look at parts of an argument to determine their accuracy, without passing judgment on the position as a whole. That's what I'm doing.

    Are you disputing there is generally more societal pressure on the man to be the financial provider for the family?

    Oh brother. Very dramatic.

    This guy will win re-election handily. He's in a very Republican district and they don't have paranoia about the "Republican position on women".

    Laurie Sanborn is awesome. She & her husband Andy are friends of ours. Laurie had a very successful career as an HR executive here in NH and now they own a restaurant, also here in NH. She's forgotten more about employment in NH than you'll ever know, considering you don't even live here.

    2=2+4 is a fact, but it is irreverent to the debate. Lack of motivation is not the reason for gender pay gap.

    Because the thread title said GOP lawmaker...it didn't say "GOP state lawmaker".
    Um, you were stating that he is a Senator, in fact he is a Rep in the state house.


    Once I was here, I commented.
    So you DO care.
    It's not like I saw a state senator said something stupid and decided to make a thread about it.
    AGAIN, State Rep, and you are piling on to his stupidity. If you don't care....stop. If I were you I would stop anyway since your standing, a least with me, is in serious decline with your chosen line of argument.

    It is possible to look at parts of an argument to determine their accuracy, without passing judgment on the position as a whole. That's what I'm doing.
    You are not.....AND....you are ignoring there invalidity...AND his motivation.

    If you want to join in his position, to fight AGAINST equal pay, then continue. It is NOT reflecting well.

    Are you disputing there is generally more societal pressure on the man to be the financial provider for the family?
    For many women, who are head of households, who are poor, this is not a reason, a rationale, to be paid LESS for equal work.

    Stop trying to wiggle away from GOP action to limit equal pay.

    Whats wrong, you cannot answer a question directed to you....you instead give opinion on editorial?

    Answer this that was directed to YOU:

    This isn't even making local news. It's only the left wing media and some partisan posters who are upset by what he said, which makes it even more ironic.

    As I said, it won't hurt him at all in the state. He lives in a very Republican district.

    Is your opinion that women should not be paid equally for equal work?

    I don't care what he said. He's not my rep. But I do like him. Especially now that I know the left is obsessing over him.

    I live in NH. I'm a woman. I make more than my husband.

    Basically, You know it's true and lack of evidence will not change your mind.

    You probably still beleive the 77 cent statistic that the democrats use in support of this bill. Shrug.
