    I suppose your out will be that since there are probably few NH female lumberjacks, you are not going to support state efforts towards equal pay.....or be "right there with me".

    Wow.

    Can't you get anything straight?
    This thread isn't about me, it's about a lawmaker from NH. I made a mistake in my post. I know what he is. I live here. I am sorry my mistake in my typing caused you such angst. Thank you.

    I am neither defending nor condemning the congressman...merely pointing out his ACTUAL words. If I cite your words but take them out of context or leave out inconvenient words, you would probably have a problem with that...right?
    None on the left have a problem with the lies of HuffPo and the selective rewriting of the man's words. It's all to make political points. They don't even know what women get paid in NH, or live here for that matter, so why do they even care? I still can't find the damn stats to show what women make here versus men for the same work, same job (which is what this is all about).

    I do know that when I go to the supermarket in the late mornings or early afternoons, with the exception of a few old men who are retired, and an occasional local male college student, almost everyone in the place is female. It appears in NH we have more men at work during the day than women.

    Maybe maybe not, but they don't have to be. They get preferential treatment either way.

    This is just one of the reasons why the majority of women in the USA support the Democratic Party.

    He never said women don't deserve equal pay, and
    he never said women are lazy.



    Correct, but to some people that is implied by what he said.

    He certainly didn't help the GOP with that statement no matter what his objective was in spouting that trash.

    I'm still trying to locate the data that says women in NH make less money than their male counterparts to begin with. I'm sure it happens, but it also happens the other way too. I know this from a former job where we had 2 Executive Vice Presidents, one male, one female. She made more than he did and he was there for 3 years longer than she was.

    And yes, he was absolutely cited incorrectly. But that won't stop the partisans from being partisan.
    I actually respect state congresses far more than the fed.

    I cringe everytime people think it is a good idea for the government to get involved with legislating private enterprise.

    The GOP isn't in the majority here anyway.

    This story isn't being covered on our news at all. It won't hurt him in our state, which is where he is based.

    Not everyone falls for what's "implied". Some of us actually care about what's said.

    So I could easily create the headline
    "Hardcore Partisan Democrat States That Other Democrats are Morons and Cant Read" and that would be pretty much the same exact thing.
