Wiley Cash | Posted June 17, 2012

We're manic when it comes to lists. We'll read anything set in a list format from the "Top 10 Best Beach Bodies" to the "Top 10 Worst Things to Say on a First Date." But when you start making lists about what's "most important," then suddenly listing takes on a whole new meaning.

unEqual Pay Day

Rep. Jackie Speier | Posted June 17, 2012
