As you may have noticed, Monday was Equal Pay Day. Says who? Says this Presidential Proclamation.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim April 9, 2013, as National Equal Pay Day. I call upon all Americans to recognize the full value of women's skills and their significant contributions to the labor force, acknowledge the injustice of wage inequality, and join efforts to achieve equal pay.
Equal pay. Great idea! Now, if only the liberals who proclaim this, advocate this would practice what they preach. As Rachel Pulaski of The Gateway Pundit pointed out
Last year a group of female Democrats waged war on the "gender pay gap" despite the fact they paid their female staffers significantly less than their male staffers. Three of those women were the worst offenders. According to the Free Beacon report, in 2011 Patty Murray (D., Wash.) paid her female staffers about $21,000 less per year than male staffers, a difference of 33.8 percent. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) paid her female staffers about $21,000 less than men, a 41% percentage difference and Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) paid her female staffers an average of $5,000 less, a 7.3 percent difference. The White House was also part of this hypocrisy by paying its female staffers 13 percent or $10,000 less than male staffers.
Not to be outdone, male Senate Democrats, including Bernie Sanders (Vt., officially an Independent), Jeff Bingaman (NM), Charles Schumer (NY), Jon Tester (Mont), Ben Cardin (Md), Tom Carper (Del), Kent Conrad (ND),
Bill Nelson (Fl), Ron Wyden (Ore), Tom Harkin (Iowa) and Dick Durbin (Ill), were some of the worst offenders.
As for the White House itself, apparently President Barack Obama (D) didn't get his own message.
A January Daily Caller analysis of the gender-pay disparities in the Obama White House revealed that while the women comprised approximately 50 percent of the White House staff in 2012, the median salary for female staffers was 13 percent less than the salary of male staffers.
But, as with most liberals, it is not how you act but how you feel. And how you force others to act.
