At an economy town hall here Sunday afternoon, Obama said his rival’s pick for vice president was against equal pay for equal work.
“We’re gonna make sure that equal pay for equal work is a reality in this country,” he said. “You know, John McCain’s new VP nominee seems like a very engaging person, a nice person, but I’ve got to say, she’s opposed like John McCain is to equal pay for equal work. That doesn’t make much sense to me.”
So many times, as in this case, the speaker elides something that makes the statement far more accurate. The magic phrase “the government deciding”. Using the original quote as an example, here is the corrected statement
she’s opposed like John McCain is to the government deciding on equal pay for equal work
Ah, much clearer. It is telling that socialists like Obama are generally unwilling to speak those words out loud.
