Sure is tough to keep track of your position on something when you've had so damned many of them, isn't it?
First, there was no position on the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act:
Then there was, well, still no position, but at least there was a nice empty talking point:
He supports pay equity and is not looking to change current law.Then there was something about binders full of women. In other words, still no position.
Then there was a position, sort of:
"The governor would not repeal the Lilly Ledbetter Act," said Gillespie, following Tuesday night's presidential debate. "He was opposed to it at the time. He would not repeal it."But of course, that didn't last long:
The Romney campaign has had six months to answer a very simple question. And we still have no answer. Maybe he opposed it at the time. Or maybe not. Or maybe Romney's adviser was wrong to say he opposed it, not because Romney didn't oppose it but because Romney's adviser never should have given what might be interpreted as a cut-and-dry "Screw you, women!" sort of answer because, you know, that tends to not sit well with all those screwed women.
So what's the answer? Does Mitt Romney support equal pay for equal work? Would he have been one of the few Republicans to support the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009, when almost the entire Republican Party opposed it?
Maybe Romney doesn't even care enough about women, and the fact their paychecks are still much smaller than their male counterparts, to bother coming up with an answer at all.
