It's been illegal to pay women less than men with comparable experience working the same job ever since the Equal Pay Act of 1963. The Paycheck Fairness Act is nothing more than a cynical political exercise that, if enacted, would severely hamper merit-based pay systems and cause workplace conflict. This bill would harm our economy and result in fewer opportunities and downward pressure on wages for all Americans.
The often cited statistic used to 'prove' pay discrimination - that women earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns - is highly misleading. It compares pay for every man and every woman working in every job. It ignores job duties, career choices, specific education requirements, work conditions, experience needed, and even differences in what 'full-time' means. As a result, it proves nothing.
Why are Marxist-Democrats working so hard to destroy our economy in the same way they did the territories of American Samoa and the Northern Mariana Islands? Do they not know about Einstein's definition of insanity: Doing the same things and expecting different outcomes? Are they deliberately trying to tank the economy?
The minimum wage hike that Congress imposed on two U.S. territories in 2007 has harmed their economies, according to a government audit released this week that shows more money for workers is more than canceled out by inflation and job losses.
The economic fallout has been so severe that the governors of both islands are urging lawmakers in Washington, who are considering a nationwide minimum wage hike, to forgo further increases in their territories.

It is such an embarrassment for Western Wisconsin when Congressman Ron Kind goes on the record supporting the continued incompetence that the White House is exhibiting on a daily basis.
Never mind that Obama's foreign policy blunders in Egypt have weakened the United States. Kind supports Obama.
Never mind that Obama's foreign policy blunders in Syria have weakened the United States. Kind supports Obama.
Never mind that Obama's foreign policy blunders in Ukraine have weakened the United States. Kind supports Obama.
After so many years of Obama's foreign policy blunders weakening the United States around the globe, is it any wonder that a real world leader like Putin would take advantage of the situation and pursue his conquest of Eastern Europe?
Karen Schroeder a teacher with 36 years of classroom experience will be speaking on the values of and problems inherent with “Common Core” (CC), next Monday afternoon at Logan Middle School starting at 3:30. There is no charge for this presentation and it is important for parents and taxpayers young and old to learn what this program is all about.
Contrary to what some are saying, it is a federal program that provides few or no options for parents and teachers in the classroom. This is against our Constitution as the Feds are not supposed to direct curriculum as that is to be left to the states. With this program a set of materials is provided for the teachers by unelected Washington bureaucrats, which must be obeyed as to what is to be taught, when it is to be taught, and how often tests are to be administered, often daily.
