One of the points the Left brings up in their "Republican war on women" rhetoric is how women make $0.77 on the dollar that men make, as Rachel Maddow cited on "Meet the Press."
One tiny problem, Rach. Your facts are wrong.
Kay Hymowitz, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute wrote an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal that brings a bit of context into Maddow's erroneous factoid. Seems when you factor in women wanting to be working mothers and working part time instead of full time, women actually make...more than men by comparison.
Wait. If women are making more than men for doing the same job, isn't that... sexist?
At the very least, it's yet another failure in the Left's campaign to invent a "Republican war on women" to hide their shameful past regarding the fairer sex.
Too bad that opinion piece is wrong.
The US Census, September 2011:
"Neither men nor women who worked full time, year round experienced a change in real median earnings between 2009 and 2010. In 2010, the median earnings for men was $47,715 and for women $36,931. In 2010, the female-to-male earnings ratio of full-time, year-round workers was 0.77, not statistically different from the 2009 ratio."
And too bad it's you guys that will always, always be known as the women-haters. You guys will never be able to "hide" that.
