On Tuesday, Senate Republicans blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act, a bill that would have ensured women be paid the same amount as their male counterparts. Despite the fact that this bill seems to make perfect sense to anyone with half a brain, the final vote was 52-47. The real mind-boggling cherry on top of this already non-sensical sundae is the fact that several female senators (who apparently don’t mind being paid less than their male counterparts all that much) were among those that voted against the bill.
Even though this totally sucks, the silver lining is that Comediva came up with these hilarious “GOPuhleez” memes that are so entertaining we’re left to wonder if maybe-just maybe-this makes up for such a heart-breaking loss….(Spoiler Alert: it doesn’t.) Either way, they definitely help soften the blow just a little, so here are some of the ideas of what could have possibly been going through those lady Senators' heads.
