With the way Republicans operate, it’s getting hard to tell what year we’re in.
They’re trying to block the Paycheck Fairness Act, a reasonable update to a bill passed in 1963!
It’s the latest in a long string of attacks on women. This bill would require employers to provide evidence that there are factors other than sex at play when they pay men more than women. It would penalize companies that can’t come up with legitimate reasons.
Fundamental fairness. Yet, Republicans don’t want it to pass.
They’re pledging to vote against it when it gets brought to the floor, which could happen very soon. That’s why I’m joining with Senators Cantwell, Cardin, Gillibrand and Stabenow to demand that Republicans help pass this bill. It’s the right thing to do.
But they won’t see that unless you’re with us.
Republicans continue taking aim at the idea that everyone — man or woman, regardless of race — deserves a shot.
Paycheck fairness is a vital component of the American Dream. Blocking it flies in the face of everything we, as a country, stand for.
Between health care and now women’s wages, the Republican attacks are un-ending.
These aren’t even reasonable policy debates. Republicans are finding ways to put the brakes on bills that previous Congresses passed with bipartisan support many years ago.
The Paycheck Fairness Act should pass right now, easily. That’s what we’re standing for. We need you to join us in making a stand.
If you’re with us, we can get this thing passed. But that’s the only way.
