Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009: Mitt Romney Won’t Say Whether He Supports It

In the first month of his presidency, President Obama signed into law the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay bill, assuring that women who believe they have been subject to wage discrimination get their due day in court. The bill made it through Congress and to President Obama’s desk against overwhelming Republican opposition.

Does Mitt Romney now support the Lilly Ledbetter Act?

And would Mitt Romney have signed the first bill President Obama signed when he came into office?

Mitt Romney doesn’t say. His campaign will only say that Mitt Romney won’t seek to repeal it.

Why do so many Republican Party leaders appear to hate women so much?

How is this good politics?

    The really scary thing is that when Sam Stein asked about Romney’s position on it, the campaign said they had to get back to him. This says they didn’t even know what the Ledbetter Act was!
