I’m totally a chick then.
[LEFT]"Republicans opposed the bill for different reasons. Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.)[/LEFT]
[LEFT]signaled Monday night[/LEFT]
[LEFT] that he wouldn’t support it because he thinks it may burden small businesses."[/LEFT]
That sounds like bullshit to me. I can’t think of a single reason how giving women equal wages would hurt small businesses, that effectively would mean that raising minimum wages would hurt small businesses. As I see it.
[LEFT]"Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told reporters Tuesday that he didn’t think the bill would do the job and said it “reads more to me like some sort of welfare plan for trial lawyers.”[/LEFT]
Wow, that is just plain offensive.
[LEFT]“In other cases, it may be due to personal decisions that women make to leave the workforce to raise children for a number of years and then return to the workforce, for example,” Collins continued. “I don’t think you can assume discrimination.”[/LEFT]
Um, what the fuck? Apparently women are dropping their jobs left and right to raise their children. That isn’t exactly as easy nowadays as it used to be. These people seem a little out of touch. An astounding prospect, I know. : \
Even if that were true that still has nothing to do with the bill at hand, sounds like the person just said the first thing that came out of their mouth without considering that…fuck it, I’m too tired to explain, the person that said that is a moron, period.
[LEFT]"House and Senate Democrats have [/LEFT]
[LEFT]slammed Mitt Romney[/LEFT]
[LEFT]for saying silent on the issue"[/LEFT]
He only responds to money being thrown at him, big surprise.
