Our guest blogger is Rebecca Lefton, a Researcher with Progressive Media.

Today, Senate Republicans voted unanimously against legislation to close the pay gap between women and men. The Senate voted 58-41 against allowing debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would help end discriminatory pay practices against women. It had already passed the House.

<span style='font-size: 20pt'>More than 45 years after passage of the Equal Pay Act, the pay gap shockingly persists with women still earning on average 77 cents to every man’s dollar. According to the National Women’s Law Center, <u>“This persistent pay gap translates to more than $10,000 in lost wages per year for the average female worker.” The gap is even worse for women of color: African-American women earn 61 cents and Latinas earn 52 cents for every dollar a white non-Hispanic man earns</u></span></div></div>


No surprise.

A new report states that 50% of lawmakers are millionaires! By keeping the Bush Tax cuts for the rich, they will receive a hefty rebate from Uncle Sam.

So $800 for the middle class, $ 80,000 for the top 1%. Seems fair. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif

It is fair that everyone gets to keep more of their hard earned cashed instead of having a tax increase by Obama.

So you inherit a Billion $ and put that into some hedge fund, are the profits 'hard earned cash'?

Somebody earned it.

Somebody paid tax on it.

Who should determine where the wealth goes after the wealth creator passes ... the state or the one who created the wealth?

Now ... you are close to an epiphany again.

Leftist tax policy isn't about taxing the top 2%.

It's about protecting the top.1% and keeping the rest of the top 2% from ever getting to the top .1%.

Billionaires don't gain or lose by changes in income tax rates because they don't have income. They are investors and are taxed on capital gains, not payroll taxes.

The democrooks have savaged public education and now use Bravo Sierra class war fare catch phrases to befuddle those who believe whatever the party tells them to believe.

</div></div>I don't think there is a single American taxpayer in that bracket. Are you aware that inheriting that type of wealth is much more rare than first generation millionaires?
