When President Barack Obama called on Congress to raise the minimum wage and strengthen federal equal-pay laws for women, congressional Republicans refused to stand up and support it. Literally.

"Of course, nothing helps families make ends meet like higher wages. That’s why this Congress still needs to pass a law that makes sure a woman is paid the same as a man for doing the same work. Really. It’s 2015. It’s time,” Obama said Tuesday during his annual State of the Union address.

“And to everyone in this Congress who still refuses to raise the minimum wage, I say this: If you truly believe you could work full-time and support a family on less than $15,000 a year, go try it. If not, vote to give millions of the hardest-working people in America a raise.”

The remarks drew a standing ovation from many in the chamber, but not from House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and some Republicans, who remained seated.

Republicans have blocked legislation to strengthen fair pay laws for women four timessince 2011. Republicans have said that the legislation would discourage employers from hiring women out of a fear of lawsuits.

Okay here’s my two cents. I’m absolutely disgusted. Yes both candidates have been probably the worst in years. I agree. But when I woke up today and got on social media people weren’t cheering for the new president like past elections, people are scared and terrified for there lives. People feel invalid. Women are scared because America let a man that has a child rape case against him coming up in December. He has assaulted women and doesn’t deny it. Sure lots of people are pro life and want him in office because of that. That’s a given for republicans. But how can you defend a man that says women should be punished for having an abortion. This isn’t 100 years ago and as women we need to stand together and make sure we not treated as less. When a man makes fun of the disabled, his actions should be taken accounted for. I’ve been taught that bullying makings you weak and an idiot to hurt someone’s life. America do you agree? Immigrants are scared for there lives. Immigrants have helped build this country and everyone that comes here deserves freedom. Families are scared because they fear they’ll become segregated. That isn’t what America has been moving towards, segregation is the past and working together makes us stronger. When people are separated civil wars happen. With the outcome last night people are afraid but we can’t just stand around and let a racist, rapist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, white rich man tear America down. We’re better than that. We now have gone from the first black president to a president whose been endorsed by the KKK. If that truly doesn’t make your stomach turn then I’ve lost all hope for America.
