Romney also patted himself on the back for supposedly requesting a "binder full of women" he could hire while he was governor of Massachusetts. Turns out that story is just another lie, and "the percentage of senior-level appointed positions held by women actually declined throughout the Romney administration."
Not that having a binder full of women has anything to do with whether Romney believes those women deserve equal pay. That's a question he can't seem to answer,
In April, on the very day he rolled out his three-pronged strategy to woo women, his campaign was asked about his position on the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. The answer? "We'll get back to you on that."
After an hour, the campaign decided Romney "supports pay equity and is not looking to change current law." Which is not much of an answer, considering Romney has spent his career promising not to change current law, only to then insist that of course he hates current law and will absolutely fight to change it if that's what conservatives want to hear him say. See, for example, the "settled" law of Roe v. Wade. See, for further example, everything else Romney has ever promised.
So promising not to undo current law doesn't answer the question of whether Romney supports equal pay. Especially when his party officially does not support it, and almost every Republican in the House and Senate voted against the Ledbetter Act, and have also opposed the Paycheck Fairness Act.
After the debate, Romney adviser Ed Gillespie said Romney "was opposed to it at the time" and would not have signed it. So while repealing it may not be part of his legislative agenda, just as he swore restricting abortion was not part of his legislative agenda, Romney opposes it, plain and simple.
So after all this time, after repeatedly being asked to say, once and for all, whether Romney supports equal pay and what he'd do to ensure equal pay for women, Romney still can't answer that question. And it's a very important question, one women have the right to know the answer to when they're deciding the next president. You know, when they're not busy filling binders and cooking dinner.
