#11. THE OBAMA LIES PILE UP

Obama and Dirty Harry Reid restart war on women meme to take attention away from failure of Obamacare, using false statistic that women earn 77 cents on the dollar less than men. http://www.thedailybeast.com/art...

Lie is pointed out by one of Obama's own female members of his Council of Economic Advisers. Reporter points out that women in Obama's White House earn less than the men working there. Art Carney attempts to reply, arguing against the way Obama's statistic is derived, and hilariously asserts the White House wage discrimination against women is "better than the national average."
