Obama Signs the Lilly Ledbetter Act!

Woo hoo! Obama has officially signed, The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, fair pay legislation! In Obama’s own words:

It is fitting that with the very first bill I sign … we are upholding one of this nation’s first principles: that we are all created equal and each deserve a chance to pursue our own version of happiness. If we stay focused, as Lilly did, and keep standing for what’s right, as Lilly did, we will close that pay gap and ensure that our daughters have the same rights, the same chances, and the same freedom to pursue their dreams as our sons.
