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

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”.

    Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat™.

  2. Does her idea of equal pay for equal work happen to be zero wages for everyone?

    • So far as I know she hasn’t come out for lowering the minimum wage….yet.
      What else is interesting and I imagine very few know is that her husband is the son of Spokane’s form mayor Rodgers. When he retired he moved to San Diego.
      Cathy and her husband have bought 2 homes totaling over $5 Million. One in San Diego and one in Washington D.C.
      They have no intention of living here after she stops running for office.
      She’s just screwing with the very illiterate Eastern Washingtonians.
