Media Invent Controversy about Mitch McConnell and 'Gender Pay Equity'

So at this point, they’ve basically dropped any pretense of doing anything serious on the economy. That’s why we heard them essentially admit that their ‘governing agenda’ is actually a political document drafted by campaign staff — that the proposals it contains are basically just show votes designed specifically not to pass. So that’s one side of American politics: a party that’s out of ideas, campaign-obsessed, and utterly beholden to the Far-Left. On the other side, though, you have a Republican Party that’s committed to getting our economy working for the Middle Class. We believe in the power of ideas, and we know that, with the right forward-looking policies, we can — and will — break through the stagnation of the Obama Economy. Republicans’ focus is on offering more opportunity to the Middle Class, and those who aspire to it. Our focus is on offering innovative ways to generate the kind of stable, well-paying jobs the Americans people want. We also know that we can get more done as a country if both parties can work together to see these policies through and leave behind the sterile campaign theatrics that have been on daily display here under the Democrat Majority. So I’m asking our Democrat colleagues to consider dropping all the show votes, the blame-deflecting, and the perpetual campaigning. What I’m asking is for them to consider shifting from policies that don’t work — in other words, what they’ve been trying the past five-and-a-half years — to ones that will. Every Senator was sent here to get things done for our constituents. And we can. We can pass a positive jobs agenda for the American people. All we need is for Washington Democrats to work with us for a change.”
