Here’s their plan. Democrats are going to sell paycheck equality in 2014. More class warfare to stir up the masses against the Republicans:
The full-court press by the White House, congressional Democrats and party officials, comes on National Equal Pay Day, which reflects how far into the current year women must work to match what men earned in the previous year.
President Barack Obama on Tuesday will go back to the first law he signed as President, addressing equal pay with two new executive actions that satisfy both policy and political priorities within the White House.
According to a White House official, Obama’s executive actions will focus on “pay secrecy,” the idea that women who are paid less than their male counterparts may not know it because they don’t know what other employees are making.
I know just where he can start:
Despite advocates’ cheers about paycheck equity, the Obama White House has paid women less than men for years.
According to a Daily Caller analysis of “2013 Annual Report to Congress on White House Staff,” the most recent available data on White House pay, the White House paid women an estimated 11.8 percent less than men in 2013.
The year prior White House paid women 13 percent less than men — and in 2011, according to the Free Beacon, women were paid 18 percent less.
Not surprising considering Obama’s misogynist comments in the past:
The moment came at a campaign stop in Detroit, when Peggy Agar, a reporter at ABC’s Detroit affiliate WXYZ-TV, asked Obama this question: “Senator, how are you going to help the American autoworkers?”
“Hold on a second, sweetie. We’ll hold a press avail,” replied Obama, referring to a structured question and answer session with the media.
Hours later, Obama left Agar a voicemail, apologizing for not answering her question and for calling her “sweetie.”
“That’s a bad habit of mine,” Obama said in the message. “I do it sometimes with all kinds of people. I mean no disrespect and so I am duly chastened on that front.”
You want to know what Democrats are up to? Look at what they’re accusing Republicans of doing.
