America is in worse shape since jean has been in Washington or in the district posing for those goofy smiling photo ops.

the economy is still a mess, illegal immigrants still pouring across the southern border, Washington a mess, deficit growing each day and jean just runs around smiling like nothing is wrong.

Jean time to return to the district go home bake cookies or help the PTA or PETA or help the animal shelter in your neighborhood. your really unqualified to be in Washington.

Get out of congress get a life and let America be managed by some one who understands economics.

Understand how to screw women over that is!!!!!

"Republicans blocked a key equal pay measure Monday night, and are whining that Democrats made them vote on it at all.

The Paycheck Fairness Act, which would close loopholes in the Equal Pay Act of 1963, was defeated in one of those classic Senate votes in which the bill had 52 votes—a majority—but was blocked by 40 Republicans. That's no surprise:

Counting procedural votes, it’s the fourth time Republicans have voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act since 2012.
This is a bill with strong public support in addition to its majority support in the Senate. But Republicans have a clear view of who's causing problems here:

“It’s politics,” said Sen. Deb Fischer of Nebraska, one of four women Republicans in the Senate.“It’s a one-sided vote for political reasons, so [Democrats] can use it in campaigns.”
Here's a thought! It wouldn't be a one-sided vote if even one Republican would vote in favor of a bill that puts a higher standard on employers' efforts to show they're not discriminating, strengthens penalties for breaking the law, and makes it easier for women to find out if they're being discriminated against. But Republicans object, basically, that if women can find out they're being discriminated against illegally, they might sue, and that would be bad. Heaven forbid people breaking the law face penalties—if they're employers, anyway.
Republicans even added another layer of noxious political gamesmanship to the process of blocking the Paycheck Fairness Act for the fourth time:

Politico reported that Senate Republicans allowed the Paycheck Fairness Act to proceed as an apparent way to choose the lesser political evil:“To eat up Senate floor time and disrupt planned votes on raising the minimum wage and responding to the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby contraception decision.”
That's right, some Republicans voted yes on a procedural vote about a popular issue that works against them in order to waste time and hopefully avoid votes on other popular issues that work against them. Because, hey, they can always use their minority to block it on the second vote, thank you very much, broken Senate rules! It's disgusting, and every voter should know that not only are Republicans standing in the way of women being paid what they deserve, they're also manipulating votes on that to better stand in the way of raising the minimum wage and supporting contraception access.

What War on Women??? 4th time they've blocked this bill!!!!

Who us?!??!!?"

I don't think saying things as degrading as this is going to help your War on Women there buddy...

"Jean time to return to the district go home bake cookies or help the PTA or PETA or help the animal shelter in your neighborhood."

Shaheen, fighting for Women because people like ALL REPUBLICANS think Women can only help the PTA!!!!!!

What an aweful thing to say, thanks for pointing out your GOP character!!!!

If jean and the other bozos in Washington are so smart why is America in such a mess??.

Everyone one in Washington needs to be voted out of office replaced with new people with new ideas attitudes and work ethics .

everyone both parties all offices voted out and new people voted in while there is still time to save America,

what we have now is not working for the long term interest of the country or our people.

I will not be voting for anyone in office now because the people in office now have brought us to the point where we are now and we really need change,

Sorry, you're trying to peddle that both sides are to blame BS so you can move further obstructionists to Congress.

When the Republicans have ZERO interest in Governing or Policy and offer nothing but obstruction, resorting to simply go home (House sets the schedule and just released itself until after the election it's clear, ONE party is the party to do nothing but cause problems.

Let's get Democrats, always have been the party of Governance, back in control of Congress and ease this ridiculous "Dr Suess" Government shutdown cause they have no ideas Republican house massive obstruction policy.
