Women Aren't Important to Republicans

The Republicans just don't think that your concerns about pay equity are important enough for them to discuss and vote upon in the Senate.


...Republicans filibustered Democratic-led legislation aimed at closing the pay gap between women and men. The measure would beef up protections for women who sue employers for gender-based wage discrimination or discuss pay with their co-workers — and the GOP blocked it just as it did in late 2010 when the Paycheck Fairness Act last came up......

“It’s pure election-year politics,” said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). “This bill reads more to me like some sort of a welfare plan for trial lawyers.”

After the vote, Mikulski said, “We’re not going to give up. … But it’s a sad day.”

Marco Rubio is wrong if he doesn't think that this matters to women.  Women want to have equal access to the same jobs and the same pay scale that men have in a company.  Why does Rubio think it is all politics?  A majority of households in this country are headed by women.  Every single time the Republicans vote against the rights of women, they are taking away freedom and opportunities for women and their families.

Shame on the Republicans.  Shame on them for gloating while women lose more rights.
 This is not June Cleaver's world anymore. Women are informed and working to expose the truth.  We know that the huge debt that our country has was caused by the two wars that were waged by George W. Bush.  We know he didn't pay for them and just put that debt aside.

Women need to think twice before voting for any Republican.  Why vote for someone that will only create more grief and restrictions on your life?  A woman voting for a Republican is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders. You know what will happen in the future.
