Why am I not surprised?
Barack Obama is doing his best to demonstrate his fiscal responsibility in keeping down wasteful spending: Pay female staff members less than their male counterparts!
If you listen to Barack Obama’s speeches, he waxes poetical about equality for women in all areas. He pauses for dramatic effect as he tells you how he wants his two daughters to have the same opportunities as our sons. One Obama campaign ad takes a swipe at John McCain, saying, “Today women work to help support their families but are paid just 77 cents for every dollar a man makes. It’s just one more thing John McCain doesn’t get about our economy.”
The truth? It’s Obama who doesn’t get it. Or he does get it, and just doesn’t care: While Obama complains that women in America are paid only 77 cents for every dollar men make in the same positions, he only pays his female staff members 78% of what he pays male staff members in comparable positions.
So which are you, Obama, the pot or the kettle? Some people talk the talk… and nothing more.
Meanwhile, female staffers on John McCain’s staff earn an average of 24% more than women in comparable posts on Obama’s staff. Some people walk the walk… and THAT’S what’s needed if women want to be valued as equals.
I guess you could say Barack Obama pays his female staff members in “pocket change they can believe in.”
He is so full of it.
