The Paycheck Fairness Act was introduced by Democrats earlier this year to help end pay discrimination toward female employees. The bill would have punished employers who discriminate with larger penalties and would have made it easier for women to find out if they are being paid less than male employees for the same work. President Obama supports the bill, while Mitt Romney has declined to support or oppose it. Democrats have accused Republicans of waging a war on women because of the anti-women policies being introduced and passed in GOP controlled legislatures across the country. But on Tuesday, Senate Republicans continued the war on women by blocking the Paycheck Fairness Act through filibuster.
