    Reid didn't filibuster women, Mitch did.
    Why did McConnell scream for straight-up-and-down votes last decade when in power?
    Threatening to go nuclear?

    With then Majority Leader Sen. Frist campaigning the whole season in then Minority Leader Daschle's state--something never done before.
    Something McConnell warned Reid to never do or he would shut down the government if he did .

    Filibuster women? LOL!! Political parties have become narrative machines and some people just lap it up.

    The vast majority of what has been going on in congress for way to long now revolves around and is designed specifically for campaigning.

    I'm a woman. I wonder if I'm supposed to feel different after being "filibustered".

    I think it probably depends on who is doing the filibustering. For a woman, I would imagine that being filibustered by someone like Brad Pitt would be a much more enjoyable than, say, Micheal Moore.

    I think I could enjoy being filibustered by Brad Pitt.

    This is a real bummer. I was filibustered by Mitch McConnell and I didn't even know it while it was happening. He's pretty heinous, but it was better losing my filibuster virginity to McConnell and not Reid. That's the stuff of nightmares.

    You are just an Aunt Tom to Democrats until you toe the party line.

    Because telling the private sector how it should or should not pay people is not an appropriate role of government. Let's say the bill passes. One of two things will happen. Either women doing the same job as men with the same effectiveness and seniority will get paid the same as men, or businesses will rewrite the job descriptions to show that the jobs are different and pay women differently than men. In other words, no change. The government should spend this time and effort working to reform itself rather than to become even more intrusive and burdensome to personal freedoms.

    The law tried to change the definition of "establishment" to include separate outfits of the same employer that exist in the same "political subdivision of the state".

    I'm surprised they didn't try to amend the definition of "fairness".

    do you feel violated?

    mistreated?

    underpaid?

    under appreciated?

    if not, you can join my wife on the sidelines of this argument

    she thinks most of this is nonsense

    but she does think that girls in school should get a class to learn to negotiate better

    how to assert themselves better.....

    she thinks that would fix most of the issue
