Equal Pay for Equal Work: Lilly Ledbetter (31 sec)

This is the new Obama add. It made me cry. I grew up in a single parent home, my parent a woman. My father refused to pay child support, my mother taking the jobs she could until she started a business on a whim and a prayer. There were days she had no idea what we would eat. We had no money.

That scourge McCain voted against equal pay for equal work.

I faced the same battle in 1980.
