President Barack Obama will urge Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would make it easier for women to sue companies that pay them less than men. Critics say the bill won't help women. "The bill is a cruel hoax. It won't empower women who face pay discrimination, but it will empower trial lawyers whose junk lawsuits will clog up the courts and make it hard for businesses to grow and hire," says a spokesman for Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio.
