    I won’t hold my breath on it passing in the House. Speaker John Boehner is scared of the 80+ Tea Party loons as are many in his party. I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think it will pass.

  2. This is excellent news. However, the legislation may still falter in the House of Representatives. If it does, it will mean there are STILL those who think it’s OK to discriminate against others on the grounds of their sexuality. Could I suggest to those who may vote for such, that they go and live in Russia where they will undoubtedly feel more at home ….

    GOP = Grand Old Party.

  4. The House is controlled by Republicans. Time will tell.

  5. I hear that Boehner will most likely block the measure from going to a vote in the House.

    Headline is misleading. It hasn’t passed the Senate though it is certain to do so now it has enough votes to break a filibuster. Good news nonetheless though chances in the House are not good.

  7. Passed the Senate – DOA in the House Committee & Floor!!!!

    What is the point of introducing ENDA – when it will not pass all stages of Congress, then that means ENDA can not get signed by Obamas left hand!!!!!!!!
