Out with it, John

By Mustang Bobby

Speaker John Boehner repeated his bullshit excuse for not bringing ENDA up for a vote.
“I am opposed to discrimination of any kind in the workplace or anyplace else, but I think this legislation … is unnecessary and would provide a basis for frivolous lawsuits,” Boehner said at a Capitol press conference, signaling the bill had no future in the House. “People are already protected in the workplace.”

Unless there’s been a change in the law in 29 states, including Florida, in the last two weeks, it’s still legal to fire someone for being gay. So no, they’re not already protected in the workplace. Period.

I honestly wish he would just come out and say that he’s opposed to gay people and get it over with. After all, he’s a Republican and being a sniveling bigot about other people is part of the package along with his NRA card and membership in a restricted country club.
