“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
The White House has not narrowed the gap between the average pay of male and female employees since President Obama’s first year in office, according to a Washington Post analysis of new salary data.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
I can see why you wanted to "editorialize" the headline. The actual headline is absolutely no fun at all if your intention is to cast Obama in a bad light.
If you were able to decipher that I'm confident most everyone else was able to wrap their heads around the concept.
For future people who join the discussion after a moderator inevitably changes the thread title to the correct headline, the original misleading title was "Obama doesn't want Moms staying home to raise their kids. Wants the state to do it."

There's no question that Obama believes it'd be better to have the child spend less time in a family environment and more in the control of the community.
There's just no denying it.
He just couched it as a gender/pay issue for the impressionable behind and in front of him ... and apparently for some here.
This crap is getting scary! What he said, or meant to say, is not the issue, IMO. The fact that some are even thinking along these lines is what bothers me. Is this another step in a path they want the populous to get used to, and eventually accept as normal? Total allegiance to the government who knows by some mysterious means what is best for everyone? Many will probably hail this as an advancement in human evolution where everyone becomes a flesh and blood robot, and Orwell will be proven right. Unfortunately, he meant it as a warning of what not to allow to happen!
