This bill voted on today was 100% partisan. Dems voted for it. Reps voted against it. So, come again, on how these two parties are 100% the same. They may both be awful, but they are not exactly the same.

Everybody should be paid the same and malingerers should be shot.

Food for thought:

"The pay differential is quite striking in some cases, especially among leading Democrats. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), who runs the Senate Democratic messaging operation, paid men $19,454 more on average, a 36 percent difference.

Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) paid men $13,063 more, a difference of 23 percent.

Other notable Senators whose “gender pay gap” was larger than 23 percent:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.)—47.6 percent
Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D., N.M.)—40 percent
Sen. Jon Tester (D., Mont.)—34.2 percent
Sen. Ben Cardin (D., Md.)—31.5 percent
Sen. Tom Carper (D., Del.)—30.4 percent
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.)–29.7 percent
Sen. Kent Conrad (D., N.D.)–29.2 percent
Sen. Bill Nelson (D., Fla.)—26.5 percent
Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore)—26.4 percent
Sen. Tom Harkin (D., Iowa)—23.2 percent

Sen. Sanders, who is an avowed socialist who caucuses with the Democrats, has the worst gender gap by far. He employed more men (14) than women (10), and his chief of staff is male. Like many of his fellow partisans, he has previously accused Republicans of “trying to roll back the clock on women’s rights.”"

people have the right to discuss their pay openly

Is that the main issue here? When and where people can discuss their pay.

Do you get drunk before surfing the OWS forums?

People should be allowed to openly discuss their work conditions

Im not familiar with it, and have stopped backing things because they "sound" good. (see Patriot act).

Will there be anything else attached to it?

Will the pigs go nuts once its close to voting time?

I guarantee it.
