Head Of GOP Women's PAC:-Women Are "Too Busy" For Equal Pay

Head Of GOP Women's PAC Flubs Equal Pay Question



Cari Christman, executive director of the PAC, told WFAA that Republicans oppose the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act because "women want real-world solutions to this problem, not more rhetoric." The law, signed by President Barack Obama in 2009, allows women to file a claim against pay discrimination when she discovers it, not a limited amount of time after the unequal pay began.

When asked what her proposed solution to the gender pay gap might look like, she began repeating the point that women are "busy."

"If you look at it, women are extremely busy," she said. "We lead busy lives, whether working professionally, whether working from home, and times are extremely busy. It's a busy cycle for women, and we've got a lot to juggle. So when we look at this issue we think, what's practical? And we want more access to jobs. We want to be able to get a higher education degree at the same time we're working or raising a family."

1. More word salad brought to you by the same folks who brought you Sarah Palin.

They don't even try to answer the questions, they just blather on and on and hope that if they fill the silence with the sound of their voices, no one will notice that they haven't said anything.

2. Juanita Jean thinks that this lady is an idiot

Juanita Jean has some strong words for this lady http://www.juanitajean.com/2014/03/17/there-is-no-such-thing-as-a-republican-woman/

Honey, there is no such thing as a Republican woman. There are Republican girls but once a girl becomes a woman, she becomes a Democrat.

This is the damn strangest story. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is running for Governor of the Great State of Texas. The only problem is that Abbott ain’t all that fond of hooter toters. He wants to stand between women and their doctors, women and their God, women and their marriage choices, and women and their right to work for less money than men.

As you might suspect, this ain’t going over real big with Texas women. However, Texas girls don’t mind it much, so some of them are getting paid to form a PAC called “Red State Women.”

Greg Abbott did not support the Lilly Ledbetter Act for Texas. Do you wanna know why?...

Women do not want equal pay for equal work. Women are very busy so they want something practical, you know, like more jobs for less pay. Better we have two jobs that don’t pay the same as a man than one job that does. Because we’re busy. And practical. Freedom. Busy. Errrr … busy.

And this is the damn leader of the Red State Women PAC. The smartest one. She is being paid. Money. Not the same as a a man would be paid, of course, because she’s busy.

Look, somebody grab a dipstick and check her estrogen level. I think she’s about a quart low.

The GOP is worried about losing the single suburban female vote and so is trying to confuse the issue
