Thursday on MSNBC, women’s equality activist Lilly Ledbetter blasted Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) for voting against the Fair Pay Act, which was named after her.

“Paul Ryan is very pleased with himself that he voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act,” she said.

“That’s for families. That’s voting against American families, and American families right to get what they’re legally earning and entitled to under the law. And he’s also going to do away with Medicare, Social Security.”

“Paul Ryan scares me to death,” Ledbetter continued. “I did not like to hear him when he was just a congressman. The way he would talk about cut, cut, cut. We americans in this country in middle class and down, we will not survive.”
