It’s been quite a week for Texas Gov. Rick Perry. He went from signing a bill to defend Christmas in Texas’ public schools to vetoing one that would have defended women’s right to equal pay, a state version of the federal Lilly Ledbetter Act.
Forty-two other states have these equal-pay laws.
So Perry chose to address an imaginary problem and ignore a very real one. Is he still on those pain meds for his back?
