I don’t have any problem with fair pay at all, I think that’s a good idea,” Akin said in the meeting. “I have a healthy skepticism with big government getting in and trying to tell us everything we do in our lives. […]
“I think if you want to talk about how much somebody is paid, that should be a discussion between the employee and the employer,” he said. “We call it freedom. And for the government to stick its nose in and tell you how much you should pay somebody, I think it’s just wrong. I think it’s taking our freedom away.
Ah! So the government telling you whether you were raped or not and what you are allowed to do with your uterus is absolutely fine and not an infringement of freedom at all, but assuring that women make the same as men for doing the same work is evil and socialistic and the very antithesis of freedom. Thanks for clearing that up, Todd.
