Rob Portman's Votes Show Where He Really Stands On Equal Pay

Nov 03, 2015

Last week, Ann Romney attempted to help Ohio Senator Rob Portman rally Ohio women by launching “Women for Portman.” Speaking at the event Portman said, “Equal pay for equal work is critically important and I think all the women in this room probably agree with that, and that’s something that we as Republicans should support and strongly support.”

“Sen. Portman is right about one thing: Republicans like him should support equal pay for equal work. But he has repeatedly voted against the Equal Pay Act and the Paycheck Fairness Act,” said American Bridge 21st Century President Jessica Mackler. “Ohio women deserve a senator who fights for women and equal pay for equal work.  As long as Rob Portman refuses to support legislation that provides women equal pay, he’s just another man in a suit making empty statements to win votes.”
