Equal Pay for Equal Work

President Obama: I was raised by a single mother. My grandmother worked her way up to become a Vice President in a local bank. She hit the glass ceiling. "This is one of the reasons why one of the first bills I signed was the Lilly Ledbetter bill." Then uses the phrase "brings suit." "This is not just a women's issue. This is a family issue." Administration expanded pell grants by giving directly to students. "We have to enforce the laws, which is what we are doing... in every walk of life, we do not tolerate discrimination."

Mitt Romney: "Important topic, and one that I learned a great deal about." I only hire men. Flexibility in the workplace. Not the worst answer he's had this evening.

President Obama: There's a lot here that Mitt Romney won't tell you. Romney is letting Congressional Republicans dictate women's healthcare. "That's not the kind of advocacy that women need." Planned Parenthood. "That's a pocketbook issue for women."
