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.

More BS from a corp(se)oRATist. Who in hell would buy the statement that women do not care about getting equal pay for work that they are doing - RIGHT NOW???. Some of the dumbest shit in the world is being spouted by corp(se)oRATists. She might just as well have said - "I got mine so Fuck You".

Here is more Crap from corp(se)oRATists:

Please join Daily Kos and the Campaign for America’s Future by signing our petition to the 28 Senate Democrats who last week voted to cut food stamps—demanding they put low-income families ahead of corporate welfare. Click here to sign.

On May 21, the U.S. Senate blocked an amendment to reinstate $4.1 billion for food stamps.

But we can’t just blame GOP obstructionism. Twenty-eight Democratic senators joined all voting Republicans in putting corporate welfare for a handful of crop insurance companies ahead of low-income families struggling to make ends meet, by voting down this amendment.

As House Republicans push even more draconian cuts to food stamps, now is the time to take a stand. Please join the Campaign for America’s Future by signing our petition to the 28 Senate Democrats, demanding they put low-income families ahead of corporate welfare.

Sincerely,

Roger Hickey Co-Director, Campaign for America's Future

Yes, Michelle Obama is a clown. I'm glad you had the courage to admit that.
