Alex Smith, chairman of the College Republican National Committee, Cassie Williams, executive assistant of the CRNC, and Maggie Cleary thought that the simple visual aid of apples and oranges might make the White House rethink its perspective on paycheck fairness.
Even White House press secretary Jay Carney fumbled an explanation of pay inequity in the Obama administration today, citing experience and education as reasons for the White House pay gap.
Jay Carney makes ME dizzy from the spin. "Yes, the White House pay is not equal, but it is less equal elsewhere." How does he not laugh?

Maybe Carney should get a clue from Smith and her friends.
Paycheck Fairness act doesn't provide paycheck fairness for women, instead it cuts flexibility and ends merit pay #PaycheckFairnessAct
