Romney STILL Can’t Say If He Would’ve Signed Lilly Ledbetter Act (Happy Equal Pay Day!)

April 17, 2012

Romney on the spotAs you are probably aware, Mitt and Ann Romney recently sat with Diane Sawyer for an interview. (We covered their comments on former dog Seamus and CrateGate here yesterday.) In honor of Equal Pay Day, I thought we’d take a look at another portion of that interview today:

DIANE SAWYER: I want to talk about a couple of issues relating to women. This 19 point difference between you and the president on women. Here are some specific questions. If you were president– you had been president– would you have signed the Lilly Ledbetter Law?

MITT ROMNEY: It’s certainly a piece of legislation I have no intend– intention of changing. I wasn’t there three years ago–

DIANE SAWYER: But would you have signed it?

MITT ROMNEY: –so I– I’m not going to go back and look at all the prior laws and say had I been there which ones would I have supported and signed, but I certainly support equal pay for women and– and have no intention of changing that law, don’t think there’s a reason to.

Uh-huh. So Mitt still can’t bring himself to say whether he would have signed the bill into law. The best he can do is say he’s not going to change it. Hmm. This isn’t the first time the question has been posed to Romney and/or his campaign. in fact, they’ve had at least a week to come up with a more satisfying answer than this. And this is the best he could do?

There’s a very good reason women don’t like Mitt Romney. I suggest a WAR PAC (Women Against Romney) — we can band together with the dogs. After all, Mitt seems to have about as much regard for both dogs and women.
