The GOP supports equal pay for women, except when it’s on the Senate floor 

Republicans are claiming that they support equal pay for women, but the party’s recent actions tell a different story.
The claim comes in this tweet from the Republican National Committee (via the Huffington Post) marking Labor Day, the holiday meant for celebrating the American worker by issuing hollow political statements that don’t really add up.
Equality wasn’t the priority in April | Follow micdotcom
