So we're at it again. Bipartisanship just went down the crapper.
The Republicorporatists blocked an up-and-down vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act. And Susan Collins (R-Maine) was among those who voted against it.
Women still make 77 cents to every dollar a man earns. Collins said she was "concerned about...small business." A small business as defined by current law is one that employs up to five hundred people. That's not exactly your typical mom-and-pop operation, which is the first thing that comes to the mind of anyone who hears "small business."

If you can afford to pay 500 people, you can afford to pay them a living wage. All of them. Not just the ones who pee standing up.
