More Screwtape in Washington

"Lilly Ledbetter is about half Barack Obama's height, but she makes up in determination what she lacks in stature. This was clear when the president stooped to embrace her yesterday after signing his first bill into law, a landmark piece of equal pay legislation which has been named after her."

The irony in all this is that the law will lead to fewer jobs.  And it is fundamentally wrong.  If Lilly did not think she was paid enough she should have gone elsewhere.  She did a job and was paid for it and the new law will make it less likely that there will be more jobs for people like Lilly.  Obama did not create her job, and this bill will not protect her job or anyone else's job.  If the market is not allowed to pay commensurate to the work performed the jobs will not be offered.  Screwtape is ensconced in Washington and he is winning new converts every day.
