Earlier today, the @BarackObama account administered by Organizing for Action (OFA) attempted to shame Republicans regarding equal pay. The tweet included an image of an Apollo Lunar Module and an astronaut on the Moon, with an overlaid text of "It's not 1963 anymore."

Americans first landed on the Moon in 1969, not 1963. Missions to the Moon ended in 1972. Furthermore, the "pay gap" has been largely debunked.
