The Republican Lies – The Washington State’s US Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers Edition – ‘Congresswoman Says She Supports Equal Pay Laws, Voted Against Them Four Times’

gop lies

 

mcmorris rodgers

Ahhhhh. My favorite and my actual US Representative.

Lying?

Oh for shame Cathy, for shame.

‘But McMorris Rodgers actually voted against laws meant to address the pay disparity between men and women four times’.

‘She voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act twice’,
which lengthened the time for victims of pay discrimination to file a complaint’.

‘She also voted twice against the Paycheck Fairness Act, a measure aimed at closing the gender wage gap by ending the practice of salary secrecy, thus giving women and others a better chance of rooting out discrimination, narrowing the guidelines for what pay disparities are justified, and strengthening penalties for discrimination as a way to deter it, among other things’.

‘Republicans may say they support equal pay, but they voted unanimously against the Paycheck Fairness Act in the Senate 2010 and just 10 voted for it in the House’.

‘Senate Republicans blocked it again in 2012 with a filibuster.

‘On CNN Wednesday, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) told host Wolf Blitzer that she supports equal pay for women despite voting against a measure that would help women achieve that goal’.

‘In response to a question from Blitzer about President Obama’s call for equal pay in his State of the Union Address on Tuesday and whether she is “with the President when he says that there should be laws mandating equal pay for equal work for women,” McMorris Rodgers, who gave the official Republican response, replied’:

“Yes. Yes. Absolutely. Republicans and I support equal pay for equal work. My message last night was one about empowering everyone in this country, no matter what your background, no matter where you live, what corner of the country, no matter what your experiences are. We want you to have the opportunity for a better life”.

 

A Republican vision for America – The ‘If You Do Not Work, You Shall Not Eat’ Edition – Lunches seized from kids in debt at Salt Lake City elementary’

uintah elem school

Please feel free to call the school and thank them for following the rules!!

Uintah Elementary School
1571 East 1300 South, Salt Lake City, Utah 84105
Phone (801)584-2940 – Fax (801)584-2944

See it’s the kids fault that their lunch accounts are empty. So what the school district did was we give the kids lunches, then we can see who owes and then we take the food away from the kids.

‘The workers then took those lunches from the students and threw them away, he said, because once food is served to one student it can’t be served to another’.

‘Up to 40 kids at Uintah Elementary in Salt Lake City picked up their lunches Tuesday, then watched as the meals were taken and thrown away because of outstanding balances on their accounts — a move that shocked and angered parents’.

‘Jason Olsen, a Salt Lake City District spokesman, said the district’s child-nutrition department became aware that Uintah had a large number of students who owed money for lunches’.

‘As a result, the child-nutrition manager visited the school and decided to withhold lunches to deal with the issue, he said’.

‘But cafeteria workers weren’t able to see which children owed money until they had already received lunches, Olsen explained’.

“It was pretty traumatic and humiliating,” said Erica Lukes, whose 11-year-old daughter had her cafeteria lunch taken from her as she stood in line Tuesday at Uintah Elementary School, 1571 E. 1300 South’.

‘Lukes said as far as she knew, she was all paid up. “I think it’s despicable,” she said. “These are young children that shouldn’t be punished or humiliated for something the parents obviously need to clear up.”

‘Jason Olsen, a Salt Lake City District spokesman, said the district’s child-nutrition department became aware that Uintah had a large number of students who owed money for lunches’.

‘As a result, the child-nutrition manager visited the school and decided to withhold lunches to deal with the issue, he said’.

teabagger Alert!! – ‘Tea Party Terrorists Plead Guilty To Building Anti-Muslim Death Ray’

anti muslim death ray

‘Two Tea Party members in upstate New York entered a guilty plea to federal terrorism related charges, on Jan. 27. The (Albany, NY) Times Union reports the two men, Eric Feight and Scott Crawford, were caught planning to build an x-ray weapon of mass destruction, in order to wipe out Muslim-Americans, whom they referred to as the “enemies of Israel.”

‘Crawford and Feight built a prototype of the remote control device that would have activated their ‘death ray’. The FBI described the weapon as’ :

“a radiation emitting device that could be placed in the back of a van to covertly emit ionizing radiation strong enough to bring about radiation sickness or death against Crawford’s enemies.”

‘The two had also chosen an area Mosque as the first target at which to aim their weapon of mass destruction’.
