Obama: Romney Is “Backward” About Women
President Obama told a Friday night audience that Mitt Romney would move the country backward on women’s issues.
“The choice between going backward or moving forward has never been so clear,” Obama told several hundred women at the National Issues Conference…
“And as long as I’m president, we are going to keep moving forward. You can count on that. You don’t have to take my word on it – you’ve got my signature on it,” he said, referring to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, before adding a jab at the Romney campaign, which expressed uncertainty recently about whether the candidate supported the law. “Because something like standing up for the principle of equal pay for equal work isn’t something I’ve got to ‘get back to you on’ – it’s the first law I signed.”
