When Obama was a senator he also voted for the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2008.
“Three years ago, the House passed the paycheck Fairness Act to level the playing field for America's women,” Ledbetter said during her prime-time speech at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday. “Senate Republicans blocked it. Mitt Romney won't even say if he supports it. President Obama does.”
