There’s something awfully weird about Republican women.
From the Washington Post –
So, here’s the deal. Republican women would rather be paid less than men for the same job just so long they get to watch people go without healthcare.I think they are serious about this.Republican Shelley Moore Capito, who is running for Senate in West Virginia, even goes one step further –
Chuck Flannery, Capito’s political director, said the West Virginia congresswoman has been long supportive of women’s issues, and her campaign in the Senate carries on the same tradition. Capito has pointed to Obamacare as particularly harmful to women in West Virginia as well as environmental restrictions on coal.
She’s for you not having health care and getting lung cancer. And she’s willing to be paid less to do it! Helluva plan, ma’am.
Obamacare makes health care more gender neutral. However, Republican women aren’t all that big on equality.
Here’s what I think. Any female elected official who opposes a gender neutral health care plan for America and equal pay for women should give up their health care and take a 30% pay cut.
And Capito should have to spend a month working in a coal mine. But only because she makes my skin crawl.
