Romney Campaign: “We’ll Get Back to You on That”


Mitt Romney’s Campaign on Whether Romney Supports the
Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act: ‘We’ll Get Back To You On That.’

Las Vegas, NV – On a press call this morning, Mitt Romney’s campaign was asked if Mitt Romney supports the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Their response to the question was, “We’ll get back to you on that.” Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement on the Romney campaign’s failure to take a position on this important legislation:

 “The first piece of legislation President Obama signed into law was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which goes to the heart of the equal pay issue, giving women the power to challenge discrimination where they work.  The President’s position on this issue is simple: equal pay for equal work.

“Mitt Romney’s position on equal pay for women: ‘We’ll get back to you on that.’ That’s not an answer that gives Nevada women any confidence that Mitt Romney would stand up for them and that’s not an answer that gives Nevada families any confidence that Mitt Romney is committed to restoring middle class security. If women earn less, Nevada families are worse off.

“If Mitt Romney doesn’t have a position on this basic question of economic fairness, how can the people of Nevada take him seriously on the most pressing issues facing our country: Ensuring hard work and responsibility is rewarded, everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same rules.

“If a bill to repeal the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act were in front of Romney, would he veto it or sign it? We already know that Mitt Romney believes we should turn back the clock on women’s health care and that he has been suspiciously silent on his hero – Governor Scott Walker – restricting Wisconsin women’s ability to enforce in court their right to equal pay. This is just further proof of Romney’s extreme positions, how they are continuing, and how he can’t walk away from them.  His attempts to etch-a-sketch his extreme positions won’t work, especially with Nevada women.”
