Mitt Romney really doesn't want people to know where he stands on the Paycheck Fairness Act. The bill, which will be coming up for a Senate vote next week, would close loopholes and strengthen protections in the Equal Pay Act of 1963. But not only has Romney not said anything
about this important issue himself, the Washington Times
His campaign didn’t respond to five messages left over the past week seeking his stance on the Paycheck Fairness Act. In April, when he was fending off questions about his stance on women’s compensation, his campaign would only say he “supports pay equity” but would not say any more about the new legislation.
This is a major policy issue which the United States Senate is actively considering, and Mitt Romney won't tell even the conservative media where he stands on it. Of course, that tells us all we need to know—as Kaili Joy Gray wrote Saturday, "You're for equality or you're not. Period.
" Romney says he supports the concept, but he won't say a word about the bill that would take the concept toward reality. That means he's not really for equality.
Mitt Romney may be silent on the Paycheck Fairness Act, but the Senate won't be. Tell your senators to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.
