TRIGGER WARNINGS:  In which I suggest that our Senior Senator is like NATO—No Action, Talk Only.
For John, BLUF.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



Here is the sub-headline:
Warren only Democratic woman in Senate not to recognize Equal Pay Day
From The Washington Free Beacon, by Mr Brent Scher, today, 5 April 2017.

Here is the lede plus one:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) failed to acknowledge Equal Pay Day for the first time in her Senate career after it was reported on Tuesday that women working in her Senate office earned just 71 percent of what was earned by men.

Warren has used Equal Pay Day, which fell on April 4 this year, in years past as an opportunity to speak out on the gender pay gap.  Last year she took to the Senate floor to call Equal Pay Day a "national day of embarrassment" and pledged to continue her "fight" until the pay gap was erased.  She gave similar statements on Equal Pay Day in 2015, 2014, and 2013, her first year in the Senate.

Didn't Mr Donald Trump used to provide equal pay for equal work when he was in the private sector?

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
