“Median earnings for women in the 17th Congressional District are 30 percent lower than men’s earnings according to a new report released by Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-NARAL)”.
This “report” is titled “Poised for Success or Scraping by: How our Economy is Still Failing Women” and it boils down to yet another “report” promoting raising the minimum wage to $10.00+.
There are two things I don’t get about this “report”:
1. Except for a brief Schilling blip, the 17th CD has been controlled by liberal Democrats since 1983; the State O’ Illinois has been controlled by Democrats for a decade; and Rock Island County, which is the core of the 17th CD has been controlled by Democrats for 40+ years. So how the hell did they let this travesty happen to women—one of their primary constituencies? Who is accountable for this gross negligence and plot to hold down women and keep them enslaved? Blago? The Jacobs family? Gianulius? Phil Hare? Lane Evans? Who has allowed this gross injustice to continue? Democrats need to step forward to explain themselves and their discriminatory policies for the last decades and heads need to roll. Pronto!
2. Has anyone actually seen this “report”? Eric Timmons didn’t seem too curious about getting a look at it, let alone demanding it be put on the internet for all to see since I’m sure it was paid for with taxpayer $$$$$. How do we know it says what Bustos says it says? What neutral entities, if any, have tested the methodology and checked the facts and numbers? Isn’t it curious how uncurious the establishment press is about such things? If Bustos presented a report stating the sky was made of cheese, would Timmons take it at face value because, if a Democrats says it, it must be true?
It is clear that the GOP:
1. Needs to get a copy of this “report” and fact check it for truthfulness, and
2. They need to determine which Democrats have been waging a War On Women, lo these many years and see they are punished to the full extent of the law—or at least driven out of office.
