Democrats pay female staffers less than men

Democrats have made it their goal to convince voters that there is a war on women by Republicans and, if it wasn’t obvious enough, there’s more proof that this is nothing more than campaign rhetoric designed to win over female voters. A report out today showed that Senator Pat Murray, who has repeatedly accused Republicans of waging a “war a women,” pays her female staff member much less than male stagger. In fact, she’s one of the worst offenders. Female members of Murray’s staff made about $21,000 less per year than male staffers in 2011, a difference of 35.2 percent.

A significant “gender gap” exists in Senator Diane Feinstein’s office, where women also made about $21,000 less than men in 2011, but the percentage difference—41 percent—was even higher than Murray’s. Boxer’s female staffers made about $5,000 less, a difference of 7.3 percent.

Women working for Senate Democrats in 2011 pulled in an average salary of $60,877. Men made about $6,500 more.

While the gap is significant, it is slightly smaller than that of the Obama White House, which pays men about $10,000, or 13 percent, more on average.

The pay differential is quite striking in some cases, especially among leading Democrats. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), who runs the Senate Democratic messaging operation, paid men $19,454 more on average, a 36 percent difference.

Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) paid men $13,063 more, a difference of 23 percent.

Other notable Senators whose “gender pay gap” was larger than 23 percent:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.)—47.6 percentSen. Jeff Bingaman (D., N.M.)—40 percentSen. Jon Tester (D., Mont.)—34.2 percentSen. Ben Cardin (D., Md.)—31.5 percentSen. Tom Carper (D., Del.)—30.4 percentSen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.)–29.7 percentSen. Kent Conrad (D., N.D.)–29.2 percentSen. Bill Nelson (D., Fla.)—26.5 percentSen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore)—26.4 percentSen. Tom Harkin (D., Iowa)—23.2 percent
As is typical with most liberal politicians, their latest “war of women” campaign is nothing more than talk designed to brainwash ill informed voters.

Paying them less vs. Telling them what they can and can't do with their bodies, forcing pelvic exams on them, and cutting all funding for basic health care and education through planned parenthood.

I'll go with the lesser of the two evils in the Democrats.
