GOP former congressman and current candidate says Lilly Ledbetter law is a nuisance.
Well I guess so sir since you're a MAN! But it means a lot to many women who want equal pay!
From the article
When an attendee asked Hoekstra if he would ?work to repeal? the law ? which empowers women to hold employers accountable for pay discrimination ? Hoekstra replied, ?It shouldn?t be the law?:
Hoekstra joined most of the rest of his party in voting against the Ledbetter act in 2009, and also in 2007 when Republicans killed it. (HT: Amanda Terkel)
