Pelosiís Economic Agenda: 'Unleash the Power of Women'
CNSNews ^ | June 27, 2014 | Ali Meyer

(CNSNews.com) - "The best thing we can do to grow the economy of our country, keep America number one, is to unleash the power of women,” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told the National Partnership for Women and Families Thursday in Washington, D.C.

Pelosi said the Democrats' economic agenda has three pillars, including “fair pay, whether it’s the Paycheck Fairness Act or raising the minimum wage”; paid family leave; and "affordable, quality" child care.

“In the last couple of days I’ve been working with members on our economic agenda for America, and so we said how long we’ve been saying, ‘When women succeed, America succeeds’ should be a major part of this agenda. And ...this morning we decided it’s not going to be just a major part of it, it’s going to be it. And we’re going to add other things to it. But we’re not going to be the addition, we’re going to be the heart of the matter, ‘When women succeed, America succeeds,’ Pelosi said.

I believe she and Harry Ried are both suffering from dementia.

Seems it’s ok for a woman to stay home and take care of the kids as long as you call it “Family Leave”.

Can I ask a stupid question?

What’s all this business about equal pay for women?

The Equal Pay Act of 1963 bans pay discrimination between males and females in the same jobs.

If women are really being paid less for the same work as a man, whose fault is that? It seems to me that Obama and Eric Holder already have the law on their side, to prosecute such cases of pay discrimination, if such cases exist.

Pay discrimination is already against the law, and has been for decades. What am I missing???

I think it’s more to do with their freedom to say any stupid, idiotic statement and enjoy absolutely no scrutiny from our non existent free press.

Including Fox News

“fair pay, whether it’s the Paycheck Fairness Act or raising the minimum wage”; paid family leave; and "affordable, quality" child care.

Why is 'unleashing women' all about leashing others?

Pelosi is a sexist!

"Unleash the power of women"???? Like in 2008 at the polling place when they put Obama in the White House? America could've done much better without THAT kind of power.

I'd rather see women unleash something else!

“She wants us to unleash our women?”

Yeah, she wants to turn them into men, so they will have to turn their children over to the state to raise properly while they go out and work alongside their husbands (sperm donors)! Now that’s what I call real “advancement” for women.

It’s clear now, the Democratic party has unleashed a barrage of psychopaths as it’s face. Obama, Pelosi, Ried, Holder and a crew of like minded minions at their beck and call. Never before have I seen such a collection.

Dan Quayle put an extra `e’ in potato and if you believed what the MSM wrote, you would have thought he had said the US had 57 states.
Nanzi `Miss Lube Rack’ Pelosi gets a complete pass.
I go out of my way anymore to try and be good to people I believe are conservative and I shun those who are not: these people are empowering lunatics like Nanzi, Hairy, Slow Joe, algore, Chewbacca and Barry.
When the SHTF, same thing.

The natural question that should be asked on-the-spot as a reply is:

"How does what you're asking the government to supply, compare with what you provide in pay and benefits to the farmworkers on the vineyards you co-own in Napa Valley"?

Asking that question sort of answers it.....

While I believe in equal pay for equal job responsibilities, I also believe in the right person for a job regardless of sex. Pelosi's tunnel vision on gender, on the other hand, suggests that she's living in flashbacks from the 60s.

I agree..

And for the record, Dan Quayle didn’t put an extra in Potatoe.

He was handed a flash card created by an idiot teacher. It was misspelled on the card.

If you search the video, you can see is was torn what to do.
He actually shows the card to the kid an class with the word potatoe with an E.

It could have been an ambush, wouldn’t doubt it.

But the BS media narrative was set, and it worked. There was no wide spread internet back in 1992. So the truth was killed.
