Know the laws and who the F1ck still uses fax machines?
Woman are still paid less than men because it's accepted behavior.
[QUOTE=chiefst2000;4496850]Tort reform is a scam? Tell that to the small businessman that was sued because he sent a fax to a client that had called in asking to be informed when the product they were looking for became available. Oh yes that was me. Apparently the Government passed a law banning the sending of faxes to anyone unless you can establish a prior business relationship with. Thanks to your precious tort lawyers we first battled and won the case in State court. Then the scumbag refiled it in Federal court. We battled and won again. The max fine for sending the fax was $1500. But the scumbag attorney (no offense Doggin) tried to turn it in to a class action lawsuit. They wouldn't even accept a $1500 payoff. Well IJF your precious tort attorneys cost my business $15,000 in legal fees. All for sending a fax to a customer that requested it.
Then your precious Democraps allowed these same scumbag tort attorneys to craft legislation called Paycheck Fairness. This was part of the Democrats campaign to paint Republicans as anti-women. They passed a basic version called Lilly Ledbetter act which in itself was unnecessary and harmful to women and business. That wasn't enough. The tort attorneys wanted blood and they were seeing green. So they crafted this new piece of legislation which would allow attorneys to examine the books of companies and look for numerical discrepancies between the wages men and women were making for similar jobs. This would lead to class action law suits against companies where the numbers don't line up evenly. Sounds great to a liberal. Particularly one that never had a job or owned a business.
The problem? Many women are also moms. They value flexible work schedules over higher pay. They want the ability to work less hours, work from home on occasion and take extra time off when the kids are sick etc. Many companies accomodate working moms with this type of flexible scheduling. If that law had passed that would have changed. Working moms would be faced with the choice of working longer hours and spending less and less time with their kids or quitting their jobs. The Republicans opposed that legislation on a party line vote. I applaud them for saving working moms, already feeling guilty about being away from their children more then they like, from having to make the unmakable choice between working or being a mother.
Thanks to the GOP they don't have to make that decision now. For your tort attorneys that you seem to love this was a major blow. This was however a major win for Women, working moms, and the companies that accommodate and value working women and moms.[/QUOTE]
