Did you see this video? I have to hand it to Rachel Maddow. I would have reamed Alex Castelannos a new ahole for such condescending treatment. These two reps of the GOP are either being purposely disinguenous (i.e., lying) or they actually do believe their own set of facts. There is and always has been since these kinds of studies began an imbalance in the pay for men and women for equal work, regardless of age, regardless of profession, regardless of education, etc. The fact that Republican politicians and pundits on the national scene are now saying that their set of facts trump what has been solidly proven by a mountain of evidence (remind you of their rejection of climate science?) just irritates the crap out of me. I’m all for skepticism but skepticism MUST be followed up with scientific investigation before you make up your mind.
Did you know that over a 1,000 legislative acts regarding women’s reproductive health have been proposed in the last couple of years? This is more than we have had since Roe v. Wade was decided back in 1973. I am not buying the Republican argument that they care about Bread and Butter issues of the American woman. They are saying that they care but their actions show us what they are really focusing on and unfortunately it’s our lady parts. If uou are asking what this has to do with Romney….just listen, watch and read all the things he said he supported in the primaries….most of it would hurt the average working woman. Heck, with his policies we would no longer have the choice to stay home, we would be forced to. I’m not having it, are you? If you are a woman and you are incensed by this video, for the love of all that is holy get out there in November and VOTE for politicians that support your right to work, to have proper healthcare, to make your own medical decisions, to keep full-day kindergarten so you can work, etc. Being silent on these issues is not an option right now.
