First there was abortion-on-demand, then there was the supposed wage gap, then birth control without a co-pay, then the word “bossy” and now? Dry-cleaning bills.

Expect the cost of dry cleaning to be the next feminist outrage, President Obama said so in his Equal Pay Day remarks Tuesday.

“We’ll talk about dry cleaners next, right,” Obama said. “Because I know that – I don’t know why it costs more for Michelle’s blouse than my shirt.”

Expect equal dry-cleaning costs to be the next “right” that women deserve. Forget that it's more difficult to dry clean women's blouses - they usually use more delicate fabric and patterns - women deserve equal pricing!

Remember how birth control without a co-pay wasn't an issue until Obamacare made it one? This will probably be the same thing.

Because paying more for dry cleaning is oppression.
