GOP Labor Day Tweet About Equal Pay Contradicts the Facts

In the wake of a rather unflattering internal report that showed how badly the GOP has alienated female voters through opposition to equal pay measures, the Republican Party attempted to counter the negativity with a single tweet.

The RNC's official twitter account, @GOP, tweeted,

"This #LaborDay, the White House & Democrats believe paying women less than men is an acceptable practice. All Republicans support equal pay."

It is at the very least a bizarre tweet and at the most, patently untrue. Not only have Republicans flatly denied the idea that there is even a pay gap in the first place, they have blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act in the Senate, which would make it easier for women to sue their employer over pay discrimination.

Politico recently reported that according to a report commissioned by the GOP, its strategy on equal pay has failed to attract female voters
