Democrats in Congress would be better off silencing themselves with their pretend “War on Women” meme for it is the Democrat Party who pays women less – including Barack Obama and his White House staff, which pays men about $10,000, or 13 percent, more on average, according to a previous Free Beacon analysis..
- Patty Murray (D., Wash.) has repeatedly accused Republicans of waging a “war a women,” is one of the worst offenders. Female members of Murray’s staff made about $21,000 less per year than male staffers in 2011, a difference of 33.8 percent.
- Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) has a significant “gender gap” in her office, where women also made about $21,000 less than men in 2011, but the percentage difference—41 percent—was even higher than Murray’s.
- Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.)—Boxer’s female staffers made about $5,000 less, a difference of 7.3 percent.
- Democrats. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), who runs the Senate Democratic messaging operation, paid men $19,454 more on average, a 36 percent difference.
5. Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) paid men $13,063 more, a difference of 23 percent.
