FILE – This Aug. 1, 2013 file photo shows Senate Appropriations Committee Chair Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., flanked by Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin of Ill., left, and Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., speaking on Capitol Hill in Washington. Senate Republicans derailed a Democratic bill Wednesday curbing paycheck discrimination against women, an effort that even in defeat Democrats hoped would pay political dividends in this fall’s congressional elections. Wednesday’s vote was 53-44 to halt GOP tactics aimed at derailing the legislation, but that fell six short of the 60 Democrats needed to prevail. Mikulski stood up after the vote and said supporters were disappointed but that they would fight on. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
