Tyler (KETK) — Yesterday at the white house, another photo op. The president signed an executive order on equal pay for women.
I have no problem with women moving up to equal pay. I remember when I was a kid my mom telling me the men she worked with made more. I asked why? She said because they are men. I know how much time my mom was working at her job and that made me mad at the men she worked with.
The president has bee trying to gin up the war on women illusion again against the Republican Party. And yesterday, he was ready to score some big time political point.
But, a funny thing happened on the way to the forum. It seems like the White House didn't have their act together. I mean, the president travels with a hundred people. Can't one look and see what they are doing behind the scenes?
Come to find out after the president touted his support for equal pay, some reporter-- those pesky reporters --especially those who
actually speak truth to power, asked the president if he was for equal pay for women, why where the women on his staff paid lower than the men. According to a CBS reporter, 88 cents on the dollar.
Right then, the president minions went into the Jackie Gleason-Ralph Kramdon "humina humina humina."
Press Secretary Jay Carney, when asked, basically said "uhhhhhhhh we're not up to par, but we're doing better than other folks."
That's the best he could come up with? What is this? High school.
A report came out months ago saying women at the White House made less. Did they forget that? Anyone check?
I guess we are just supposed to do what we are told?
That's my point of view, what's yours?
