Hillary Clinton Knocks Republican Candidates On Equal Pay, But Who Said What? Find Out In This Game Of "Match That Candidate"

Without naming any names, Hillary Clinton knocked Republican candidates for their equal pay stances Wednesday. Speaking to the Democratic Women's caucus in South Carolina, Clinton threw shade at the GOP crowd for their baffling refusal to back legislation that would eradicate the issue. But who, exactly, was she referencing, and what did they say?

Clinton has adopted equal pay as one of the early tenets of her campaign strategy, and with an ever-widening field of GOP candidates who shudder at the thought of a woman making more than a man, it has set her apart. Capitalizing on this, Clinton criticized three Republican presidential candidates who have some inexplicably firm views against women being treated equally.

(Clinton's adopted Southern accent she used in the speech was also inexplicable, but whatever.)

In choosing not to name names, Clinton might not have wanted to wage such a pointed critique on her opponents. I, on the other hand, have absolutely no problem calling them out directly! But let's make a grim subject a little more fun, shall we? It's time for everyone favorite game — "Match That Candidate To The Dumb Thing He (Yes, He) Said About Equal Pay"! That's the working title. I'm open to suggestions. But let's play.

Statement #1

First up, Clinton said one of the three candidates called equal pay a "bogus" issue. Now, who would say a thing like that?

It's Gov. Scott Walker! In 2012, the Wisconsin governor stuck up for his decision to repeal his state's equal pay enforcement act by calling the issue "bogus."

It's a bogus issue. It is against the law to discriminate against women for employment and to pay them less than you pay men, and it will continue to be.

That's right! Walker is so sure about the laws already in place that he is willing to put money on it! Not his money, of course, but women's, which was put at stake after he repealed the law.

Statement #2

One of the candidates allegedly called equal pay legislation a waste of time. Hm, who do you think that was?

It's Sen. Marco Rubio! Rubio has voted against equal pay legislation twice since he has been in office, and he wants those damn liberals to stop showboating around with lady wage votes! He said this in a statement after voting against the 2012 Paycheck Fairness Act:

Once again, Senate Democrats have wasted the American people’s time by holding yet another show vote that proves any sense of urgency they have is about scoring political points instead of solving the problems that threaten America’s future. If Senate Democrats want to address ‘paycheck fairness’, they can start by supporting the RAISE Act which would help workers earn more money by allowing employers to give them merit-based pay raises and bonuses without first having to clear it by union bosses.

Wow! Both opposing women's access to fair pay and working in something derogatory about unions! DOUBLE WHAMMY! (wrong show)

Statement #3

And we've come to our final statement of the speech, and this one's a doozy. Tell me, who do you think would compare income equality to the Soviet Union?!

It's Sen. Rand Paul! After voting against the 2012 Paycheck Fairness Act (that was a great day for Hillary Clinton factoids), Paul compared raising women's wages to the Soviet Politburo.

Three hundred million people get to vote everyday on what you should be paid or what the price of goods are. In the Soviet Union, the Politburo decided the price of bread, and they either had no bread or too much bread. So setting prices or wages by the government is always a bad idea.

There you have it, folks! Join me next time for another inevitable edition of "Match That Candidate To The Dumb Thing He (Yes, He) Said About Equal Pay"!
