Marsha Blackburn ( R-TN ) went on Meet the Press and pontificated about how women don't care about legislated equal pay for equal work:
AXELROD: How about pay equity laws to ensure that women are treated fairly in the workplace?
BLACKBURN: I think that more important than that is making certain that women are recognized by those companies. You know, I’ve always said that I didn’t want to be given a job because I was a female, I wanted it because I was the most well-qualified person for the job. And making certain that companies are going to move forward in that vein — that is what women want. They don’t want the decisions made in Washington.
They want to be able to have the power and the control and the ability to make those decisions for themselves.
