Fair Pay Act Passes Without Kline's Support

President Barack Obama signed an equal-pay bill into law Thursday before cheering labor and women leaders who fought hard for it and the woman whose history-making lawsuit gave impetus to the cause.


Obama, choosing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act as the first bill to sign as president, called it a "wonderful day" and declared that ending pay disparities between men and woman an issue not just for women, but for all workers.



The measure, which amends the 1964 Civil Rights Act, also applies to discrimination based on factors such as race, religion, national origin, disability or age.



Unfortunately Congressman John Kline doesn't believe women are entitled to equal pay as he voted against it. Again...why does Congressman John Kline hate women?



Nuff said...but apparently Kline is continuing to cling to his idealogy over solutions (or civil rights...) Kline continues to cling to ideology over real solutions

Obama is a great president. His presence is impacting grants like no other president prior. Grant funding for minorities and middle class have increased nearly 10,000% in the past week.
