President Barack Obama now has the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 headed to him to sign … not without the objections and votes of GOP members of congress who proved once again they represent corporations not working Americans … both of Virginia’s Senators … Jim Webb and Mark Warner voted for the legislation and it  “Passed Senate without amendment by Yea-Nay Vote. 61 – 36. Record Vote Number: 14.”

In the House “On passage Passed by the Yeas and Nays: 250 – 177 (Roll no. 37)” Virginia’s Delegation voted as follows:  Robert Wittman, Bob Goodlatte, Eric Cantor, Frank Wolf, Randy Forbes were all recorded as voting NAY

I’m pleased to report that every one of Virginia’s Democratic members supported the legislation: Gerry Connelly, Glenn Nye, James Moran, Rick Boucher, Bobby Scott, Tom Perriello all voted YEA
