  1. Boehner doesn't have to stand up for the equal pay part, because liberals keep advocating this false narrative that women make 77 cents on every dollar a man makes.  not every job is equal, not all experience is equal, if you leave the workforce for 10 years to raise a child, which women do more so than men, you lose 10 years of work experience which means pay.  if you were to really look at same job, same education, same experience, women make 98 cents for every dollar a man makes, not because of discrimination, but because women tend to take more time off to raise children than men do.  but that wage gap disappears.  republicans are sick and tired of being told they hate women because they don't agree with abortion or when liberals using false stats like 77cents for every dollar a man makes, shuts them out. 

  2. Oh so you think we're doing so we'll against terrorism huh? Says the man who traded not one, not two, but FIVE of the higher ranking Al-Quida leaders for one soldier who appeared to have walked off on his own free will anyway.

  3. I thought John Boehner was really rude.  I watched the whole state of the union and he seemed to not give a hoot.  Either that or he is trying to make some kind of statement, which essentially means he disagrees.  Any way you cut it, he's in some way against what the majority is trying to accomplish to make things better, or simply apathetic.

  4. No one seems to know that "the man on the right" is United States Speaker of the House John Boehner.  He is a staunch conservative Republican and is often in opposition to President Obama's initiatives.  The more you know…

  5. I hope I am not the only Millennial embarrassed to be categorized as such after reading many of the comments below. OK everyone READ METICULOUSLY, as for I am tired of seeing ignoramuses post "the guy on the right!" Lets agree that if you are not able to identify "the guy on the right" as The Speaker of the House: John Boehner, than you are obviously not capable of forming an intelligent assessment on the gender pay gap issue, or any political issue for that matter. Notice I purposefully omitted my opinion on said issue as well as my political affections!

  6. Just want to let you guys know that I am laughing my ass off over here in Europe watching republican morons ruin the US. I mean how is it even possible that there are still people voting on men like John Boehner who refuses to lift his ass and applaud for equal pay for women doing the same work as men? Your democracy is fucked.

  7. April 3, 2015.  The numbers speak for themselves:
    93,175,000 Americans not working – a new record 
    12,202,000 African Americans (Obama's people whom he promised so much) are out of workforce – this too is a new record
    56,131,000 women are unemployed – Democrats' war on women
    On top of all this good news there is this:
    "The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta has reported that its forecast for U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) growth dropped to zero on April 1 and ticked back up to 0.1% on April 2. The bank uses a unique model called GDPNow to prepare its forecasts, and the model typically estimates growth well below the rate projected by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA)."

    He really did focus on the economy, n question about it!

  8. what a fucking show…. it's all smoke and mirrors… just like it's always been with this fuck…. even the last maybe eh…. 7 presidents or so. large corporation, and big business threaten us as americans. this is just a very SAD show…. make you feel "good"…. masked by the bullshit propaganda that is reality.

  9. HAHAHAHA that nasty pouty duck face on that woman at 4:34 has me laughing still! And then she saw her face on the screen and straightened that shit out 🙂 Haha politicians.

  10. So what will be Obama's legacy……….Well the ME is on fire, almost all Christians in that religion have been either killed or exiled on his watch and millions of Arabs are flooding into Europe as a consequence of his and Hilary's policies, race relations are now as bad as they were in 60's, the rest of the world think America is made of jelly and the national debt, which Obama promised to reduce has now doubled to 18 TRILLION, a debt that can never be repaid and will saddle generations yet unborn to a lifetime of misery, but putting all his failures aside, I have read that his golf handicap has much improved. I'll score him 2/10 for ………turning up for work, sometimes.

  11. Obama made us more reliant on foreign oil. his foreign policy decisions were atrocious. and the jobs that he did make are artificial govt. jobs that don't help the economy. he did a horrible job at immigration. tried taking away our guns. ignored the constitution and felt arrogant enough to think he could do whatever he wanted. Obama is one of the worst presidents bottom 10.
