“Faces of Change: Lilly Ledbetter’s Equal Pay Story”
Uploaded by BarackObamadotcom on Jan 29, 2012
“President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act on January 29, 2009. In this video, Lilly shares her story.”
“President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to help women fight back against pay discrimination. He understands that when women are paid less than men for the same work, it hurts the entire family.Mitt Romney refused to say whether or not he would have signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act into law, and Paul Ryan voted against it.”
Ending health insurance discrimination
President Obama is putting an end to the health insurance company practice of charging women more than men for the same coverage.
Mitt Romney would let employers, insurance companies, and politicians limit women’s health choices.
Women’s health and birth control
Thanks to Obamacare, many insurance plans are beginning to fully cover birth control without co-pays or deductibles as part of women’s preventive care—potentially saving women hundreds of dollars every year.
Get the facts.BACKWARD
Mitt Romney would repeal Obamacare, and give employers the authority to limit women’s access to common forms of birth control.
Protecting women’s rights
President Obama believes a woman’s health care choices are personal decisions, best made with her doctor—without interference from politicians.
Mitt Romney believes that Roe v. Wade should be overturned, and backed an extreme proposal to outlaw abortions even in the case of incest and rape.
Expanding access to health care
President Obama fought back against Republican attempts to defund Planned Parenthood, one of the largest providers of women’s health services, including breast and cervical cancer screenings, and birth control. Under Obamacare, health insurance companies now cover recommended preventive care like mammograms and cancer screenings, and are beginning to cover birth control without co-pays or deductibles.
See how you’re affectedBACKWARD
Mitt Romney would eliminate all federal funding for Planned Parenthood, and roll back all the benefits of health reform.”
“President Barack Obama Jokes and One Liners at Al Smith Dinner”

“Mitt Romney, Barack Obama to trade jabs at Al Smith dinner
The two presidential candidates took a break from the caustic criticism of the campaign trail to score political points with biting humor last night in New York City.
President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney peeled off the stump Thursday to attend the annual Al Smith Dinner at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. During presidential election years, the event brings the candidates to the same stage to trade barbs and self-deprecating zingers as the race enter its final weeks.
The white-tie affair raises millions for the Gov. Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation and is organized by the Catholic Archdiocese of New York to benefit needy children.
More than 1,600 were scheduled to attend the dinner. The menu includes poached lobster tail and dark chocolate tropical fruit cadeau. Tickets start at $2,500.
The diocese hopes to raise $5 million in grants this year. Last year it gave out $2 million in grants.
Last night’s Smith dinner fell two days after Obama and Romney exchanged heated jabs during their second presidential debate at Hofstra University. After what many observers thought was an inspired performance by Romney, and a lackluster one by the president, in Denver during the first debate, campaign watchers gave the edge to Obama after Tuesday night.
The latest polling shows the race as virtually tied.
This year’s event also come during the same year as New York’s Cardinal Timothy Dolan has clashed with the president over a federal mandate that insurance cover the cost of contraception for church affiliated institutions, like Catholic colleges and hospitals.
The mandate is part of the president’s health care reform law known as the Affordable Care Act.
More than a dozen archdioceses from around the country have filed lawsuits claiming the contraception mandate would require church leaders to violate religious beliefs to implement the law.
In March during a speech at Holy Trinity Diocesan High School in Hicksville, Dolan called the mandate a “government intrusion into the church.”
The Al Smith Dinner has been a necessary stop for politicians since World War II. The event is named for the unsuccessful Democratic presidential nominee in 1928, who was the first Catholic to run for president. Smith was a four-term governor of New York.”
