Would Straight Shooting McCain Really Oppose equal pay For Women-You Bet

“When elected representatives serve their ideology, it matters little what government is in place.” John Peterson (me)

That’s where we are with Sen. John McCain, who opposes a Senate bill that seeks equal pay for women because, as he puts it, “would lead to more lawsuits.” That would be true if women were truly being taken advantage in the market place. But that doesn’t happen, does it? This is just another Democratic bone to throw to litigation hungry trial lawyers, the life blood of the Democratic Party.

You’re going to have to sit down after you hear the “straight talk” solution. To demonstrate just how out of touch McCain is on the issue of pay equity, he offered a better way to help women deal with below average wages.

McCain; “They need the education and training, particularly since more and more women are heads of their households.”

That’s right, McCain seems to be totally unaware of the highly educated work force of women we have now. Besides the uppity few who use the courts to hurt business, women are “mothers” who need “education and training.” Then, and only then, will mothers be able to justify a wage equal to the lowest paid man at the sought after position.

Look out Sen. McCain; you might be encouraging girls to seek other forms of liberation.

Then who’ll do the cooking?
