I heard Lilly Ledbetter speaking at the DNC. It was disturbing. The impact she had – via the law named after her – is, if anything, exactly the opposite of what she and the legislators intended (which is certainly noble in spirit).

Lives – the lives of business owners and employees – are now being controlled by unseen forces in Washington to achieve an outcome that is economically impossible. (To make it even worse, the law attempts to remedy a situation which almost certainly doesn’t even exist.) The very long arm of government will get you, whether you’re looking or not.
