That anyone can take this President at his word on anything is baffling. The "war on Women", minority rights and having a workforce that "Looks like America", helping the poor and unemployed. The list goes on.
Barack Obama will say anything to further his agenda. But one need look only at his own White House to see that he doesn't believe a word he says. He sees it on the teleprompter, he says it.
Racial diversity on his staff? Not really. Equal pay for men and women? No, again. Unemployment down? Only if you don't count the millions of people who have been out of a job for so long they don't show up in the unemployment numbers any longer. Cities like Detroit are literally crumbling, and the overall pay in the country has dropped significantly. The rich and middle class are poorer, and the poor are even worse off under this megalomaniac. Over 45 million Americans are now on food stamps!
So is it surprising when someone discovers that female staffers at the White House earn 13% less than men on Obama's WH staff? Not really. It's par for the course with this guy.
70% of Highest-Paid Obama White House Staffers Are Men

In addition, men on the White House staff are paid, on average, $86,260.89 and women are paid, on average, $76,162.65. That means the average man on the White House staff is paid about $10,098--about 13 percent--more than the average woman.
In Obama's White House, women on average earn only 88.3 percent of what the men earn.
Those numbers conflict with the pay-equity philosophy espoused by the president and his administration.
In signing legislation into law -- the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act -- in 2009, which was designed in part to help ensure pay equity between men and women, President Obama said, "So, in signing this bill, I intend to send a clear message: That making our economy work means making sure it works for everyone. That there are no second class citizens in our workplaces, and that it's not just unfair and illegal--but bad for business--to pay someone less because of their gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion or disability."
