David Harsanyi on the Paycheck Fairness Act


Let's, for a moment, pretend that laws against discrimination do not already exist. And let's, for the sake of argument, treat the Paycheck Fairness Act as earnest policy meant to alleviate a terrible societal mess rather than a political stunt that allows the White House (where women make about 10K less annually than their male co-workers) to accuse half the country of supporting a patriarchal dictatorship. If we do, writes David Harsanyi, we can learn a lot about the left's view of human nature, capitalism and choices.
