I thought this sounded familiar. The "Paycheck Fairness Act" is introduced in each new Congress and "dies" on the floor as neither Party supports
It's described as:
"A bill to amend the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 to provide more effective remedies to victims of discrimination in the payment of wages on the
basis of sex, and for other purposes."
The problem is "other purposes", not the issue of fair pay for the same work. It's being used as a trick to sneak other items into an Act making it
the law of the land. Even if the main purpose is right and good, when they tack on other items it kills the attempt to pass an Act. Devious
politicians on both sides do this all the time, then after it fails they pretend it failed due to the advertised purpose instead of the truth; that it
failed because some insane Partisan item was wrongly added to it.
As I said in my prior post, they assume the voters are to illiterate to know the truth and they are generally right. Those who are for the hidden item
in the Act or Bill lie and pretend they believe it died for that reason also.
It's a scam folks and an obvious extension of the divide and conquer tactics by control freaks who don't actually give a damn about anything other
than getting what they want and controlling everyone else.
Check me out if you have the honesty and care enough to check. You all know how to look these things up.
The last attempt was by Harry Reid, a well known liar and confidence man in my opinion, who has made the US Senate moot by his actions. They simply do
not get any worse than Mr. Reid.
List of all sponsors on the last try:
"Mr. REID (for himself, Mrs. BOXER, Ms. CANTWELL, Mr. DODD, Mrs. FEINSTEIN, Mrs. GILLIBRAND, Mr. HARKIN, Ms. KLOBUCHAR, Ms. LANDRIEU, Mrs. MCCASKILL,
Ms. MIKULSKI, Mrs. MURRAY, Mrs. SHAHEEN, Ms. STABENOW, and Mr. FEINGOLD) "
A veritable who's who of the most disgusting, least honest people in the government in my humble opinion. The same group who keeps trying to limit
Free Speech and Free Press because Freedom is the last thing they want us to have.
I found the Bogey Man under the bed by going to an article by Forbes. Under this proposed Act, the hidden "other" is that rather than basing pay on
experience and abilities, it would require that people of less experience or new hires be paid the same as those with more experience, knowledge or
abilities. A veritable Marxists Nirvana of an Act. Shades of quota's Batman!!!!
I knew this was something other than it seemed on the surface.
How this will play out is exactly like this and feel free to come back and chide me if I'm wrong:
1- This group of wanna-be Dictators will pepper the news sources they control (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, PBS and nearly all Newspapers and News
Magazines in print in the US) with a fake war on women.
2- Then when it won't pass because even their own Party members don't want it on their records, they will claim it's proof that the Bogey Man (all
Conservatives) hate women, while engaging in transparent bigotry themselves at a level that should make them
the object of hate.
See if I'm not right before this is over. This is campaign nonsense and they have no intention themselves of ever passing this Act.
Sorry to post on topic. I hate being the odd man out
