Obama Announces “National Equal Pay Day” While Dems Disregard Lilly Act

Barack Obama

Last year a group of female Democrats waged war on the “gender pay gap” despite the fact they paid their female staffers significantly less than their male staffers.  Three of those women were the worst offenders.  According to the Free Beacon report, in 2011 Patty Murray (D., Wash.) paid her female staffers about $21,000 less per year than male staffers, a difference of 33.8 percent.  Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) paid her female staffers about $21,000 less than men, a 41% percentage difference and Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) paid her female staffers an average of $5,000 less, a 7.3 percent difference.  The White House was also part of this hypocrisy by paying its female staffers 13 percent or $10,000 less than male staffers.

As usual the Democrats are following their elitist motto of “Do as I say not as I do”.  Now Obama makes a Presidential Proclamation for “National Equal Pay Day” to tell us all that we must recognize “the injustice”.

Daily Caller reported:

While Obama, who signed the 2009 Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to make filing employment-discrimination suits easier, has repeatedly lamented statistics showing that men generally earn more than women, the Obama White House has failed in recent years to pay female employees the same amount as male ones.

A January Daily Caller analysis of the gender-pay disparities in the Obama White House revealed that while the women comprised approximately 50 percent of the White House staff in 2012, the median salary for female staffers was 13 percent less than the median salary of male staffers.

In last year’s report some of the worst offenders were male Democrats:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.)—47.6 percent

Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D., N.M.)—40 percent

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.)­-36 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. 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

Sen. Dick Durbin (D., Ill.)- 23 percent
