Elizabeth Warren is a Hypocrite Who Pays Women Less and Lies About the Filibuster

Elizabeth Warren is a hypocrite. She regularly goes to the floor of the Senate and on television to assail the “wage gap”, claiming that women need equal pay. But last year, Elizabeth Warren paid her female staff 29% less than her male staffers.

Now Elizabeth Warren is out crying about the filibuster. How dare Mitch McConnell change it!! She is opposed to any filibuster change. But wait. In 2012, Elizabeth Warren wanted the filibuster scrapped altogether. She wanted to go further than any Senate Democrat or Republican leader by scrapping the legislative filibuster.

Warren, at the time, said,

If Republicans continue to filibuster these highly qualified nominees for no reason other than to nullify the President’s Constitutional authority, then Senators not only have the right to change the filibuster rules, Senators have a duty to change the filibuster rules.

Of course, the media is so in the tank for the Democrats that few, if any, of them will call her out on her hypocrisy.
