Reps. Deborah Ross, D-Wake, and Verla Insko, D-Orange, joined pay equity icon Lilly Ledbetter in a call purportedly set up to push Romney to endorse the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would give women certain legal rights if they discover a male coworker is making more for the same work.
"The president's record demonstrates his belief that women's issues are American issues," said Ledbetter, who is the namesake of the first bill Obama signed, which removed restrictions on when women can sue if they discover pay discrimination.
