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.

Hey Vicki , Just like your old man had commitment to Maryjo when he left her to drown in the water. How can you even say that when you are the one who married a DRUINKEN MURDER. Did you think we forgot?

As far as women getting equal pay I don't have problem with that as long as they can do the same type of work. They must be able to perform like a man and not say I'm a woman and i can't do that. Things like physical labor, heavy lifting etc. I know there are a few who can do that and yes they should be paid the same.

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?")

His commitment to women: They can equally share in lost jobs. And by the way... How much does a rubber cost?

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

No one disrespected women more, and had more contempt for the rules of law and morality than the Kennedy "men". (And I use the term loosely!)

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?

Obama White House pays women less than men, records show

According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).
