Good icy Wednesday morning! We’re iced in here at Chez PunditMom — no school, but that’s OK as PunditGirl is trying to devour Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. But that doesn’t mean that politics stops on a snow/ice day.
President Obama is scheduled to sign the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act into law today. It’s a great first step, but there are other pieces of legislation that significantly impact women that need his attention, too. Plus, it would be great if there was a way that Lilly could get back the $360K she lost when the Supreme Court ruled against her last year. But there’s still more work to do.
It’s never too soon to start working on the next, next generation of women leaders.
If we can’t trust our peanut butter, what can we trust. Oh, and here’s the rub — when the manufacturer found out about their tainted peanut butter, they weren’t required to report it to the FDA. President Obama, can you put this on your to do list? Oh, and also we need to get rid of this whole mercury in high fructose corn syrup thing, too for our kids. Thanks!
I’ve already graduated from college, but maybe I can sneak into a few if Jill Biden’s classes!
And in case you were wondering what Sarah Palin is working on these days!
