23¢ Worth

Lilly Ledbetter’s speech told the story of the difference between President Obama and Governor Romney in concise eloquence. Lilly Ledbetter spoke of the day President Obama signed the Lilly M. Ledbetter Act when he said, “Making our economy work means making sure it works for everybody.”

The Supreme Court failed her but President Obama endorsed American values in signing the Lilly M. Ledbetter Act. As she pointed out- equality is not only about her, it’s about all of us.

      I’m letting my bad ass militant self OUT!

      People forget that Obama has been the catalyst for a lot of positive change, predatory lending practices/usurious credit card interest rates limited by law, equal pay for equal work- There is still a lot to do.

    Ms Ledbetter right out of central casting to give a face and common sense to what seems a no brainer issue. Her dig at Mittens had just the right amount of bite.

  4. Yay… equality all around… except, you know, for people who are different than us…
    (Just kidding on that last part).
