Senate Republicans have once again shown that they are firmly in the pocket (more like firmly up the a$$) of big business by blocking a vote on the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act that would assure that women are subjected to a payscale that is unequal to men. The Republicans have said that it would lead to "excessive litigation on to the small-business community." "This bill appears to go way beyond the Lilly Ledbetter Act and I am concerned what the impact would be, said Senator Susan Collins, R-ME (equally paid as much as her Senate counterparts and therefore couldn't give a rat's a$$).
If the business are concerned that there might be excessive litigation then they had better be sure that they are not discriminating against women when paying them for the same work as men.
Really people... when will all Americans be treated equally? In another 235 years? 500 years? Never? Caramba!
If you stupid women in Maine want to vote for a woman who hates her gender so much that she will vote for a system that requires women to work harder than men for the same pay then you fools deserve what you get, but don't foist this witch and her backward reactionary ideas about equality on the rest of us.
