President Obama’s so-called Paycheck Fairness Act (PFA) thankfully failed in the Senate on a party-line vote last week. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has entered a motion to reconsider the bill meaning that he can bring it back up for a vote at any time. He may force another vote on the misnamed bill in a desperate ploy to paint Republicans as “anti-woman” in the weeks leading up to the presidential election.
If we look at the failure of central planning in the Soviet Union and elsewhere, a fundamental problem was that government officials – even assuming intelligence and good intentions – did not have the knowledge needed to make decisions on prices.

Only one group of Americans can make this nation a fairer place: trial lawyers.
When the Senate comes back in session next week, expect an extra dose of preening about the noble cause of protecting women from the discrimination that plagues workplaces across America.
