A Thought for Mother's Day: Obama's War on Women. His Failed Policies Have Hit Women Hardest!

Yet Obama wants women to believe the GOP is acting against the interests of women.

By now you've heard the Democrat line that the GOP is waging a war on women. Clearly, it's yet another example of transference where Democrats accuse Republicans of doing something they themselves are guilty of.

It's not just that Obama's White House pays women less for work as the New York Times points out. It's not just that women working in Obama's White House have complained of the "boys club" atmosphere and where women felt, according to this report in the Washington Post, that the White House was a "genuinely hostile workplace to women." Or, where one top aide declared that she "felt like a piece of meat."

No, Obama's War on Women goes much deeper than the obvious hypocrisy in the White House. It's Obama's failed policies which have had a negative impact nationwide that hits women particularly hard. It isn't just the rising cost of food, gas, utilities and clothing that hits women harder than men. Here are more examples:

IN OBAMA’S TEPID RECOVERY, WOMEN’S ECONOMIC PROSPERITY HAS FALTERED AMIDST INCREASING POVERTY AND DECLINING INCOMES

Obama’s Recovery Has Been The Slowest Since The Labor Department Began Tracking Data In 1939. “Given it took four years to get this point, this jobs recovery has been the slowest on record since the Labor Department started tracking the data in 1939.” (Annalyn Kurtz, “Private Sector Jobs Finally Back To 2008 Peak, But…,” CNN’s Money, 4/4/14)

Under Obama’s Recovery, Women Have Seen Slower Job Growth Than In The Previous Three Recessions

“Women Have Experienced Weaker Job Growth” During Obama’s Recovery “Than They Had Experienced In The Previous Three Recessions.” “Nevertheless, women have experienced weaker job growth after the end of the 2007-2009 downturn than they had experienced in the previous three recessions.” (“The Rise In Women’s Share Of Nonfarm Employment During The 2007-2009 Recession: A Historical Perspective,” Bureau Of Labor Statistics’ Monthly Labor Review, 4/14)
Unemployment Rate For Women Has Remained Above The Rate It Was At The Month Before Obama Became President. (Current Population Survey, Bureau Of Labor Statistics, Accessed 4/4/14)
  • Black Female Unemployment Rate Has Increased From 10.1 Percent In January 2009 To 11.7 Percent In March 2014. (Current Population Survey, Bureau Of Labor Statistics, Accessed 4/4/14)
Men Have Gained 4.0 Million Jobs Since The End of The Recession To The End Of 2013, While Women Have Only Gained 2.5 Million. “In the economic recovery, which began in June 2009 and is reported through December 2013 in this analysis, the job gains among men (4.0 million) largely exceeded those among women (2.5 million).” (“The Rise In Women’s Share Of Nonfarm Employment During The 2007-2009 Recession: A Historical Perspective,” Bureau Of Labor Statistics’ Monthly Labor Review, 4/14)
  • In The First Three Months Of 2014, Only 35 Percent Of The 533,000 New Jobs Went To Women. (Current Employment Statistics, Bureau Of Labor Statistics, Accessed 4/7/14)
The Labor Force Participation Rate For Women Has Fallen From 59.4 Percent In January 2009, When Obama Was Inaugurated, To 57.2 Percent In March 2014. (Current Population Survey, Bureau Of Labor Statistics, Accessed 4/4/14)
The Wall Street Journal Headline: “Women Lagging On Job Creation, Shifting To Lower-Wage Industries.” (Josh Mitchell, “Women Lagging On Job Creation, Shifting To Lower-Wage Industries,” The Wall Street Journal’s Real Time Economics , 2/7/14)

Women In Obama’s Economy Have Seen Their Incomes Decline

Women Have Seen Their Median Income Fall By $733 Since Obama Became President.(Current Population Survey, U.S. Census Department, Accessed 4/4/14)
  • Under Obama, Women With A Bachelor’s Degree Have Seen Incomes Decline By $1,419. (Current Population Survey, U.S. Census Department, Accessed 3/20/14)
The Number Of Women Working At Or Below The Federal Minimum Wage Has Grown By 561,000 Since 2008, Which Represents 62 Percent Of All Workers At Or Below The Federal Minimum Wage. (Current Population Survey, Bureau Of Labor Statistics, Accessed 2/25/14)

As Jobs Pass Them By And Incomes Decline, An Increasing Number Of Women Are Entering Poverty

Since Obama Became President The Poverty Rate For Women Has Increased To 16.3 Percent From 14.4 Percent. (Current Population Survey, U.S. Census Department, Accessed 3/20/14)
  • 3.7 Million More Women Are In Poverty Since Obama Became President. (Current Population Survey, U.S. Census Department, Accessed 3/20/14)
Since Obama Became President, The Poverty Rate For Women Under 18 Increased To 22.3 Percent From 19.2 Percent. (Current Population Survey, U.S. Census Department, Accessed 3/20/14)
1.1 Million More Women Under 18 Were In Poverty Since Obama Became President.(Current Population Survey, U.S. Census Department, Accessed 3/20/14)
Ah, but that's all OK because Obama got women free contraception as if that's the only thing they care about. Meanwhile, their health insurance premiums and deductibles have gone up hundreds of dollars a year. Some bargain that free contraception right?

Obama is playing gender politics and he hopes women won't notice hot much worse they are under his failed policies. Meanwhile, Republicans continue to offer solutions which are better for ALL Americans!
