Obama? Women deserve equal pay, Hmmm... State of the Union address

During his State of the Union address on Tuesday, President Obama said that many women in the US are earning less than their male counterparts.

"That is wrong!" the President asserted. "It's an embarrassment!"

The President added: "I believe when women succeed, America succeeds!"

"Women deserve equal pay for equal work!" Mr. Obama exclaimed.

A 2008 report, however, revealed that then-Sen. Obama paid his female senate staffers 83 cents for every dollar he paid his male staffers.

Moreover, in 2013, the median salary for female employees in the Obama White House was 13% less than the median salary for male employees.

And that's not right! "That is wrong! It's an embarrassment! Women deserve equal pay for equal work!"

"When women succeed, America succeeds!"
