Vicki Kennedy says President Obama has proven his commitment to women



Published: Wed, October 17, 2012 @ 3:48 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Vicki Kennedy, the wife of the late U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy, said today President Barack Obama has proven his commitment to women and deserves to be re-elected.

Kennedy, a Democrat, spoke outside the Mahoning County Board of Elections on Oak Hill Avenue in Youngstown as part of Obama’s “Women Decide 2012” initiative. She was joined by female Democratic elected officials from Mahoning County.

She said Obama, a fellow Democrat, signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act into law. It gives women greater flexibility in court to receive the same pay as men.

Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee, has said he would not repeal it. U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, Romney’s vice-presidential running mate, voted against the act.

Also, Obamacare gives women access to preventive and prenatal care, Kennedy said, while Romney wants to repeal the health-care law.

“The choice could not be clearer,” she said.

How wonderful for her to have married a man who had a true "commitment to women." (Yet, where was his "commitment to saving drowning women?")

The utter disrespect and contempt made on these message boards shows the sorry state of affairs of our "God Fearing" Conservatives.

Another looming debate joke:
Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act

If Obama is about equal pay for women, then why has his very own administration FAILED to pay women at the same pay rates as their male counterparts?
