BARACK OBAMA BELIEVES IN EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL AMERICANS
EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK
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.
SUPPORTS MARRIAGE FOR SAME-SEX COUPLES
President Obama was the first sitting president to publicly announce his support for marriage for same-sex couples, and has always believed LGBT Americans should be treated fairly and equally.
Mitt Romney would enshrine discrimination into the Constitution with an amendment to ban marriage for same-sex couples.
REPEALED "DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL"
President Obama repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” so that gay and lesbian service members no longer have to lie about who they are to serve the country they love.
Mitt Romney refused to support the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and would have left the policy in place.
GOOD JOBS AND A QUALITY EDUCATION FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
President Obama has enacted policies that promote the hiring of people with disabilities, increased funding for students with disabilities, provide Americans with access to affordable health care, and improve accessibility standards.
Mitt Romney would repeal the Affordable Care Act and slash Medicaid, which many Americans with disabilities rely on.
