Romney Campaign on Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act: 'We'll Get Back To You On That.'

Posted

Tallahassee, FL – On a press call this morning, Mitt Romney’s campaign was asked if he supports the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. His campaign’s response to the question was, “We’ll get back to you on that.”

FLORIDA DEMOCRATIC PARTY SPOKESWOMAN BRANNON JORDAN RELEASED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT:

“Mitt Romney’s failure to answer this simple, important question demonstrates just how out-of-touch he is on the issues that matter to women and families in Florida -- and further highlights the clear differences between himself and President Obama.

“The first piece of legislation President signed into law was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which goes to the heart of the equal pay issue, giving women the power to challenge discrimination where they work.  The President’s position on this issue is simple: equal pay for equal work

“Women across the country won’t forget this flippant non-answer. Bottom line: Romney’s attempts to Etch-A-Sketch his extreme positions won’t work, especially with women in Florida.”
