In this post: Equal Pay for Women, crap art.
I forgot to mention in my last post that useless Republican hacks in the Senate pretty much told America’s working women, who still only earn 77¢ for every dollar earned by men, to drop dead today by killing the Equal Pay for Women bill.
Every Republican voted against it. Angus King, an independent from Maine, also voted against the bill, saying that it “fails to address the real causes that are driving the wage gap” but neglected to describe what they are or how to fix them.
And Sen. John Thune (R-SD) told Politico, “We see this for what it is and it’s just another attempt by Democrats to distract from what is a very bad record when it comes to helping women in the economy. That’s what this is all about, them trying to get a headline.”
Republicans, of course, are convinced the Equal Pay for Women bill was an “election-year stunt” by Democrats to “bribe” a key voting bloc. Well, yes, Einstein, it’s just smart campaign politics to give women something they need and want while you point fingers at the incumbent douchebags who oppose you.

Think of it as a paint-by-numbers project for retired war criminals. Judge for yourself:
