Senate Democrats are Sexist!

A news report in the Washington Free Bacon reports that many Senate Democrats including:
  • Patty Murray (D., Wash.)
  • Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.)
  • Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.)
Here are additional Senators that follow Boxer's lead:
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.)—47.6 percent
  • Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D., N.M.)—40 percent
  • Sen. Jon Tester (D., Mont.)—34.2 percent
  • Sen. Ben Cardin (D., Md.)—31.5 percent
  • Sen. Tom Carper (D., Del.)—30.4 percent
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.)–29.7 percent
  • Sen. Kent Conrad (D., N.D.)–29.2 percent
  • Sen. Bill Nelson (D., Fla.)—26.5 percent
  • Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore)—26.4 percent
  • Sen. Tom Harkin (D., Iowa)—23.2 percent
Some of these Senators pay their female staffers as much as 46.7% less than their male staffers.

My personal belief is that any gender pay gap that exists is more a result of group experience and behavior than discrimination but these Senators listed above do not hold those views. In fact they go so far as to pass laws forcing others to pay woman as much as men regardless of level of experience, productivity, education, etc. So, it is only fair to hold them to their own standards.

Call and ask them, "Why do you hate women?"
