For Your Daughters And Mine...The Names of The Senators Who Did Not Vote for The Lilly Ledbetter Act

The Lilly Ledbetter Act has made it through - finally! Thank you, Democrats! But not without opposition...Jen lists the folks who voted against equal pay for women. So here's the quote of the week from my blog-sistah, Jen, from Thoughts from A Liberal Mom:

"So I'm going to start with posting the list of Senator's names. If any of these are your senators, I encourage you to call and write letters to tell them that we want equal rights for women. We have to do this for our daughters' futures. And I also encourage you to reprint this list on your blogs if you have them."

Alexander (R-TN)
Barrasso (R-WY)
Bennett (R-UT)
Bond (R-MO)
Brownback (R-KS)
Bunning (R-KY)
Burr (R-NC)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Coburn (R-OK)
Cochran (R-MS)
Corker (R-TN)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Crapo (R-ID)
DeMint (R-SC)
Ensign (R-NV)
Enzi (R-WY)
Graham (R-SC)
Grassley (R-IA)
Gregg (R-NH)
Hatch (R-UT)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Isakson (R-GA)
Johanns (R-NE)
Kyl (R-AZ)
Lugar (R-IN)
Martinez (R-FL)
McCain (R-AZ)
McConnell (R-KY)
Risch (R-ID)
Roberts (R-KS)
Sessions (R-AL)
Shelby (R-AL)
Thune (R-SD)
Vitter (R-LA)
Voinovich (R-OH)
Wicker (R-MS)

May I just state the obvious here by asking, "What is it that Republicans have against equal compensation for equal work?" Seriously, I'd love to know the rationale upon which these Senators based their "Nay" vote....any takers??? Let the debate begin!
