Video: Brown Opposed The Paycheck Fairness Act. According to The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News, “BROWN: Well it’s interesting. I notice your comments on paycheck fairness, on the Dream Act, saying they are no brainers they should pass. With all due respect –[…] in the ‘Boston Globe.’ The ‘Boston Herald’ the Worcester Telegram and Gazette in my state saying ‘Hey right idea but wrong bill’. It’s an early Christmas present for plaintiff’s lawyers who are going to go in and bring lawsuits against not only women-owned businesses but every business in our state and throughout the country. […] I believe — I believe wholeheartedly as a husband or as a house full of women wholeheartedly – […]– in allowing and providing for women to have equal pay. However, there are ways to do it. And that bill, in particular, was not the way to do it. To try to take a bill, give it a great tell — this is what I love about Washington. And you know this because you report there. […] We’re going to save the world today and if you don’t vote for the save the world bill. You hate the world but you read the bill and you find out, my gosh it raises taxes, it puts more regulations on businesses that eliminates the flexibility that women want to have at the work place to not only work but actually raise families. There are so many things just by giving it a title that they not only try to ram it through with no debate and basically obligate our country for millions.” [Fox News, 8/23/13]
