Republicans: Paying Women Equal Pay Is Too Much Of a Burden

And the beat goes on ...

NPR Excerpt:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republicans have blocked a bill that calls for equal pay in the workplace.

As expected, the vote Tuesday fell short of the 60 votes needed to advance the legislation. President Obama and his Democratic allies argue that the legislation is needed to protect people who try to find out how their pay stacks up against their coworkers. Republicans said it puts too much burden on employers.
