Nice Job, Stupid Republicans.

The White House
Office of the Press Secretary

Statement by the President on the Paycheck Fairness Act

"I am deeply disappointed that a minority of Senators have prevented the Paycheck Fairness Act from finally being brought up for a debate and receiving a vote.  This bill passed in the House almost two years ago; today, it had 58 votes to move forward, the support of the majority of Senate, and the support of the majority of Americans.  As we emerge from one of the worst recessions in history, this bill would ensure that American women and their families aren’t bringing home smaller paychecks because of discrimination.  It also helps businesses that pay equal wages as they struggle to compete against discriminatory competition.  But a partisan minority of Senators blocked this commonsense law.  Despite today’s vote, my Administration will continue to fight for a woman’s right to equal pay for equal work."

This a perfect example of what Jon Stewart talked about on "The Daily Show" last night. The Republican's new talking points include saying they want to have an "adult conversation" - as if what Obama's been doing for the last two years wasn't "adult" enough? I think you're remembering the eight years before that when manchild/idiot extraordinaire George W Bush was in the White House and f-ed up the country.. Then they refuse to work with the Dems to accomplish anything. So frustrating that people can be this stupid, and childish.
