It was the Republicans who did this:
A bill aimed at stamping out wage discrimination was blocked Wednesday as too few senators voted to move forward with the legislation. The Paycheck Fairness Act needed 60 votes to move forward, and only captured 58.
Yawn. Who cares? Or as one opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal puts it:
Senate Republicans have succeeded in blocking a measure designed to reduce wage disparities between men and women.
The 58-41 vote to take up the Paycheck Fairness Act fell short of the 60 needed to overcome GOP opposition.
Hilarious. Just fucking hilarious*.
Let's not embark upon a journey that leads us to gender warfare.
*I realized that some might need an explanation of this. Note that the writer of that article already assumes an ongoing gender warfare.
Otherwise he/she wouldn't start from the assumption that an act that would have helped women
(My apologies for that error. As Emma points out in the comments I was talking about the earlier Lily Ledbetter act which did pass. No excuse except I've been writing through a red haze of anger today.)
