Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren’s economic illiteracy is showing again, and this time in a profound way.
As one of the nation’s leading advocates for closing the alleged “gender pay gap”, Warren’s economic illiteracy is well known among libertarian and conservative communities.
Elizabeth Marx has once again taken center stage at the Bernie Sanders School for Economic Illiteracy by proclaiming that female hockey players should make the same as their male counterparts.
In a letter to the executive director of USA Hockey, Warren and 13 other Senators wrote:
“As Senators committed to gender equity in all realms of American life, we write to express our serious concern with allegations raised by members of the U.S. Women’s National Hockey Team regarding USA Hockey’s inequitable allocation of resources to the women’s hockey program and unjust treatment of national team members.”
The letter continued:
“We are disturbed by reports from the U.S. Women’s National Hockey Team suggesting that USA Hockey is not providing ‘equitable support’ to female athletes. While USA Hockey provides its male athletes with a ‘seemingly endless’ supply of hockey equipment, for example, female players are often expected to ‘buy their own.'”
Thank goodness we have such caring representatives like Elizabeth Warren in office to repeal the oppressive laws of supply and demand.
Let’s just totally ignore the fact that the NHL has been around for nearly 100 years, while the National Women’s Hockey League only came into existence less than two years ago. And so what if it’s like comparing a brand new Minor League Baseball team in the hills of Nebraska to the New York Yankees. What matters is that it’s unfair that the supply is not exactly the same, even though the demand curve is even further to the left than Elizabeth Warren’s economic views!
We all must be equal, comrade. Miss Marx demands it of us, because reasons.
