House GOP Hits 'New Low,' Tanks its Own Bill over LGBT Protections

Deirdre Fulton, staff writer

House Republicans killed their own $37.4 billion water and energy spending bill on Thursday because it included a provision barring federal contractors from discriminating against people based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.

When you lay with dogs, you will get fleas...the GOP embraced the T-Baggers and the bad apples rotted the whole bunch...surprise, surprise. Focusing on minutiae such as the provision that is in ALL government contracts preventingt discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, age, or race to the detriment of the bigger picture smacks of homophobic T-Bag scat. Nothing new here.

They still believe that homophobic fears will Trump all reasonable actions and will dog whistle enough prejudiced to keep them on the winning side, It's a misdirection operation to use prejudices brought into play through the skilled use of dogwhistle tricks keep people looking at everyone they're supposed to hate and not notice thosr fools behind the phony masks
