(CNN) – An election-year Democratic measure designed to ensure that women don't face pay discrimination was blocked Tuesday by Republicans who complained that the bill was politically inspired and would reward trial lawyers at the expense of employers.
The motion, which needed 60 votes to succeed, got only 52, not one from a Republican.
It figures that the GOP didn't vote for this. I am sure that many of them would like to go back to an idealized 1960's where the married couple lived of the man's income and the woman stayed home to look after the house and kids. That never happened, and the GOP needs to wake up and see the current reality.
