Obama Gets His First Bill-Signing Ceremony

The Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 has passed the House again. Now conformed with changes made in the Senate, it will move on to the President for signage. Symbolically, this is a good bill to be the initial one signed into law - one that values basic fairness and the principle of equal pay for equal work.

5 "Democrats" voted against this - Allen Boyd (FL), Bobby Bright (AL), Parker Griffith (AL), Travis Childers (MS), and Dan Boren (OK). I say "Democrats" because I can't see how the party affiliation applies to people who vote against legislation like this.
