With Democrats trying to finally get the Paycheck Fairness Act passed through Congress to give women the opportunity to be paid the same amount as men for the same job, Republicans have a different plan.
The GOP has come up with their own bill that they believe captures their values and the values of their voters. They are countering the Paycheck Fairness Act with the “Barefoot and Pregnant Act”.
Sections of the bill state, “All women of child-bearing age must find a husband and open their womb to the highest quantity of children they are able to conceive.” “Women must ask permission to leave the home, and must always ask their husband what appropriate attire they shall wear.” “If a woman wants to work after child-bearing years, they must obtain permission from their husband and take whatever pay an institution is willing to pay them. There will be no special favors.”
“A woman’s place is in the home, not pretending they are breadwinners,” said Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN). “No one wants a pretentious female feeling they are the same as a man. They’re not, and they never will be.”
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stated, “We need to look at what is good for America, and what was good for our founders is good for us now. Listen, I’m still peeved women have the right to vote. It’s the least we can do to give some control back to men. We’re not about handouts. If a woman wanted to be treated the same as man, they should’ve been born a man. ”
Free Wood Post expects a lot of harsh criticism of this bill from Democrats, and basically anyone with a brain, and logical thinking. We’ll keep you up to date and watch if this bill even makes it to debate.
