They lost jobs? Is that really what that means? Are you sure that doesn't include retirees, new mothers, and simply women leaving the workforce for any reason? Given your track record, I'll assume I'm correct.

I appreciate your thoughtful response. If only my liberal friends would scratch below the surface on things like Romney binders and other such nonsense.
