Women in the White House get paid the same as the men, only less

Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show.

According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000)…

The Obama campaign on Wednesday lashed out at presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney for his failure to immediately endorse the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, a controversial law enacted in 2009 that made it easier to file discrimination lawsuits…

It is not known whether any female employees at the White House have filed lawsuits under the Ledbetter Act.

Why would they? Sure, they get paid a bunch less, but it’s okay because they get the fringe benefit of hanging out at Obama’s house. He’s dreamy.

By the way, don’t forget that Republicans are waging a war on women, and that’s why it’s okay to call them c***s.
