Boxer declares women un-fireable

'That's how we do things in America'

BY:

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) said Wednesday the Paycheck Fairness Act would be implemented through the court system if passed, in an interview on MSNBC's "Daily Rundown."

"You have to obey the law and you cannot discriminate against a woman, if this were to be the law," Boxer said. "You cannot fire her and if you fire her then you're going to get sanctions by a fair court and a fair jury."

CHUCK TODD: What is the best way to implement it?

SEN. BARBARA BOXER: It’s the way every law is implemented. You have a law and it's enforceable, in the courts. That's how we enforce laws. You have to obey the law and you cannot discriminate against a woman, if this were to be the law. You cannot fire her and if you fire her then you're going to get sanctions by a fair court and a fair jury. That's how we do things in America.

The Paycheck Fairness Act failed Tuesday in the Senate in a 52-47 vote.
