Why didn’t Romney bring up the fact that Obama’s vaunted “Lily Ledbetter Act” hasn’t helped the women he employs in his own administration. They are being paid an average of $11000 less than their male counterparts. Every instance of Obama’s gross hypocrisy should have been mined like a vein of gold in these debates.

Zackly. I can understand why he didn't say that at the debate. He probably wasn't even aware of that little tidbit.

But there's no excuse for not hammering him with it now.

Romney was able to beat Ubama about the head and shoulders with Big Bird, he should be able to do the same with this issue.

Paul Ryan has explained clearly and well why he voted against the act. Equal pay for equal work was already the law. What this act did was remove the statute of limitations so that claims could be made on alleged discrimination many years in the past.

The 2009 law was not to help women, it was to help predatory lawyers seeking to find paydirt (or to shake down a company) in cases where the evidence would be so old it would be hard to prove your innocence.
