Obama Derides GOP Senators for Voting Against Yet Another Equal Pay for Women Bill

Forget for a moment that Democrats control the senate and that Republicans can't do anything to stop equal pay for women bills and forget that there are already numerous equal pay bills on the books dating as far back as 1963, but didn't Obama claim to have already fixed this whole unequal pay for women thing with the first bill he signed into law, the Lilly Ledbetter Act?

Yeah, that's what I thought he was running around saying.

Too bad for Democrats the whole unequal pay for women shtick is nothing but a myth. Studies like those used by the left to make their false allegations rely on comparisons of the average wage for women versus men.  This is like comparing apples to belt buckles.  This false comparison ignores pretty much every meaningful factor in calculating how much someone's labor is worth, things like experience, skill, occupation, education and hours worked .

Here's the truth.
