Equal Pay!

Barack Obama signed his first bill today: The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act.

The bill was overturned by the Supreme Court after Lilly Ledbetter, a Goodyear Tire employee, sued for pay discrimination. The only reason they overturned this case was because she filed the lawsuit after the 180th day of receiving her 1st paycheck that had unequal pay. Ridiculous!

Barack Obama said, "It is fitting that with the very first bill I sign … we are upholding one of this nation's first principles: that we are all created equal and each deserve a chance to pursue our own version of happiness."

I love my President, but let us continue to push him into working hard for the American people.
