White House Backs Bill to Collect Employee Pay Information from Businesses
The Excerpt: (CNSNews.com) – The Obama administration is backing legislation that includes regulations requiring U.S. businesses to provide to the government data about employee pay as it relates to the sex, race and national origin of employees.
In an orchestrated effort that included a statement by President Barack Obama and an event at the White House featuring Vice President Joe Biden, Attorney General Eric Holder and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, the president and his cabinet endorsed the Paycheck Fairness Act.
Hey, giving credit where credit is obviously due, Obama is following through on his pledge to have a "laser-like focus" on jobs. Unfortunately, his out-of-focus focus has absolutely nothing to do with job creation, or the generation of economic activity.
Yepper, the Paycheck Fairness Act. Frightening as it may be, these hapless people are completely serious.

You wanted community organizers, the most pompous that academia had to offer, left-leaning lobbyists and left-leaning attorneys with negligible private sector experience and you got 'em. You wanted the Neoprogs (neo-progressives) and you got 'em.
With rigid ideology comes missteps. Know that, I do.
Do you want the ultimate in paycheck fairness? Really?
