President Obama’s persistent ’77-cent’ claim on the wage gap gets a new Pinocchio rating

In 2012, during another election season, The Fact Checker took a deep dive in the statistics behind this factoid and found it wanting. We awarded the president only a Pinoochio, largely because he is citing Census Bureau data, but have wondered since then if we were too generous.

We also called out the president when he used this fact in the 2013 State of the Union address. And in the 2014 State of the Union address. And yet he keeps using it. So now it’s time for a reassessment

Few experts dispute that there is a wage gap, but differences in the life choices of men and women — such as women tending to leave the workforce when they have children — make it difficult to make simple comparisons.

What about the UNIONS P.D.? she asked about those too. Evidently you are the lazy one. Most unions worker bees had no idea how much money went to the democrat party, through UNION dues,until O'bama was elected. Many of them are not democrats-as is evidenced in Wisconsin. Since the union workers don't have to pay dues anymore-contributions have dropped by 40%-it is a win for the union families, they can now feed their children instead of supporting the democrat party.

President Obama’s persistent ’77-cent’ claim on the wage gap gets a new Pinocchio rating

Obama is using a figure (annual wages, from the Census Bureau) that makes the disparity appear the greatest—23 cents. But the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that the gap is 19 cents when looking at weekly wages. The gap is even smaller when you look at hourly wages — it is 14 cents — but then not every wage earner is paid on an hourly basis, so that statistic excludes salaried workers.

In other words, since women in general work fewer hours than men in a year, the statistics used by the White House may be less reliable for examining the key focus of the proposed Paycheck Fairness Act — wage discrimination. For instance, annual wage figures do not take into account the fact that teachers — many of whom are women — have a primary job that fills nine months out of the year. The weekly wage is more of an apples-to-apples comparison, but it does not include as many income categories.

June O’Neill, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office, has noted that the wage gap is affected by a number of factors, including that the average woman has less work experience than the average man and that more of the weeks worked by women are part-time rather than full-time. Women also tend to leave the work force for periods in order to raise children, seek jobs that may have more flexible hours but lower pay and choose careers that tend to have lower pay.

Indeed, BLS data show that women who do not get married have virtually no wage gap; they earn 96 cents for every dollar a man makes.

For 2014, the AFL-CIO has announced it will spend $300 million attempting to defeat five Republican governors, one of whom is Walker.

And the other lie in Wisconsin was that the Republicans spent more money as in 7 to 1-did you know the UNIONS don't have to report all the money they spend? you should be up in arms.

Lastly, these figures only account for sums legally required to be publicly reported (and assumes those sums are properly quantified). Rutgers University economist Leo Troy has estimated that actual union political spending is likely several times higher than generally reported. There is no reason to think otherwise in this case.

In short, it is not clear the left was outspent in its attempts to reverse Gov. Walker’s reforms. And the widely-repeated claim that the left was outspent by more than 7-to-1 in the most recent recall election is clearly false.

Senate Majority PAC’s nonsensical attack ad in Louisiana

Continues obsessing about Koch Bro. Documented OCD. Reid ignores this little fact when attacking --

WaPo notes

"First of all, we can’t resist noting that Senate Majority PAC itself is funded by out-of-state billionaires, such as former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who donated $2.5 million to the organization earlier in 2014."

If that were actually due to liberalism then you are admitting liberals are so much smarter than you right whiners.

Yes, he proof the theory and established a baseline that the formula was TRUE.

An unproven theory/math equation is worthless and unscientific.
