Must be a slow news day if people in the southwest are obsessing about a low level lawmaker in a little state in the northeast.
You can play with all the straw you care to. It will destroy your argument, though.You probably still beleive (sic) the 77 cent statistic that the democrats use in support of this bill. Shrug.
State House Memo: Equal Pay Law works in New Hampshire but we can make it clearer | Concord Monitor
This one was written by ANDY SANBORNm, who also is a republican in NH.
My mistake, he is just a rep. All the more reason to wonder why people care.Um, you were stating that he is a Senator, in fact he is a Rep in the state house.
No, I don't care. State lawmakers say stupid things all the time. But I was already here so I commented. You took issue with the fact what he said is true (even if he said it poorly) so now I care about what you said.So you DO care.AGAIN,
With all due respect, I'm not really that concerned about my standing with anyone. It's just a forum.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.
Yes, I told you I'm ignoring his position. That's the point.You are not.....AND....you are ignoring there invalidity...AND his motivation.
As I said, one can discuss the planks without passing judgment on the platform. That's what I'm doing here.
I'm doing no such thing, and I've said multiple times now I'm not commenting on his platform. What's not reflecting well is the fact you don't seem to understand this very basic concept.If you want to join in his position, to fight AGAINST equal pay, then continue. It is NOT reflecting well.
I never said it was. What I said was that his statements were not incorrect, that there is definitely more pressure on the male to provide financially.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.
The only wiggling being done here is you, as you failed to answer my question. I'll ask it again:Stop trying to wiggle away from GOP action to limit equal pay.
Are you disputing there is generally more societal pressure on the man to be the financial provider for the family?

In New Hampshire, on average, a woman who holds a full-time job is paid $41,021 per year while a man who holds a full-time job is paid $53,033 per year. This means that women in New Hampshire are paid 77 cents for every dollar paid to men, amounting to a yearly gap of $12,012 between men and women who work full time in the state.1
Gee, the female hairdressers make less than the men who are lawyers in Boston. Color me surprised!
I wonder how many of them here are as concerned about the income disparity in the Obama WH as they are about the income disparity in NH?
I know that more women are pissed about the gax tax increase that the Dems just rammed through and our governor is about to sign into law than they are about this.
Sadly, it is a completely debunked statistic that democrats keep using to gain support for this bill and declare republicans are waging a war on women.You probably still beleive (sic) the 77 cent statistic that the democrats use in support of this bill. Shrug.
But, at least we now know that the op was actually correct, despite democrats attempts to spin it into somethign he didn't say.New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan (D) has also expressed support for the measure, pointing to negative fiscal impacts related to the state's gender pay gap.
Today, well over half of the women in our state are either the primary or co-breadwinners in their families,” Hassan said in January. “And yet, on average, women in New Hampshire earn 77 cents on the dollar compared to what men earn in comparable jobs. This disparity ... also puts further strain on our state budget and hurts our local businesses by taking money out of the pockets of consumers."
