    I'm sorry, but I don't care about the GOP and I don't believe in your rhetoric or your ideology. Try something else.

    The Democrats got exactly what they wanted out of this vote. It was a well designed play.

    Re: Senate Blocks Pay Equity Bill

    Assuming your numbers are correct, why not debate this for a Nation instead of filibustering?
    As McConnell said last decade when in the Majority, why not give Americans a straight-up-and-down vote?
    Do you really think women can "negotiate" a better deal than men given the way women are still treated in this Nation ?

    But this law went too far....training them to negotiate is fine

    But this law would be an open invitation to lawsuit after lawsuit

    Re: Senate Blocks Pay Equity Bill

    Exactly--GOPs should always filibuster everything before an election.
    And then cry as McCain did in the article that we have more important things to worry about--like the war he wishes he were leading.
    No--women are that important--give them a straight-up-and-down vote .

    This bill is nothing more than a political stunt and everybody knows it. Well, almost everybody.

    this is all you need to know right here and why this so called equal pay argument is nonsense.

    It's Time That We End the Equal Pay Myth - Forbes

    The wage gap statistic, however, doesn’t compare two similarly situated co-workers of different sexes, working in the same industry, performing the same work, for the same number of hours a day. It merely reflects the median earnings of all men and women classified as full-time workers.

    hmm that is odd.
    i wonder why that is?

    Men working five percent longer than women alone explains about one-quarter of the wage gap.

    The second issue with this is that men and women choose different fields to work in. Women give up pay for more comfortable settings.
    Men tend to take less desired jobs for more money. they work more hours and work OT something that most women don't do.

    Exactly. Not only are they ignoring the factors that go into pay, but the data they are looking at ignores what industries women and men work in and just looking at the median pay in general. It's extremely dishonest nonsense they are peddling here.

    Republicans rejected even opening debate on the legislation in April, unanimously voting it down. But the contrast between the GOP and Democrats on the issue was dulled last week when 19 Senate Republicans voted to open debate on the measure, in part to eat up Senate floor time and disrupt planned votes on raising the minimum wage and responding to the Supreme Courtís Hobby Lobby contraception decision ó initiatives that already failed this year.Read more: Senate blocks pay equity bill - Burgess Everett - POLITICO.com

    Why would GOPs vote to open debate on the measure to eat up valuable Senate floor time?
    Thus to disrupt planned votes on raising the minimum wage?
    And to respond to the Supreme court's Hobby Lobby contraception bill?

    Why do you support Sen. McConnell in turning the Senate into an impotent chamber like the House ?

    Re: Senate Blocks Pay Equity Bill

    The bill is a pathetic attempt to snatch up female voters. The sad thing is, many people are grossly uninformed and only go off the title of bills without thinking things through. Also sad, if passed this bill would encourage employers not to hire more women for fear of lawsuits.

    The "77% pay gap" is an excellent example of Mark Twain's famous quote about lies, damned lies, in statistics.

    In the aggregate, such a pay gap exists. But on a job to job basis, it is much less of a problem, if at all.

    Gender pay gap: The familiar line that “women make 77 cents to every man’s dollar” simply isn’t accurate.
