Congressional Gay Bashing

June 28, 2007 at 10:22 pm 2 comments

The House of Representatives passed an amendment adding language to the D.C. Appropriations Bill that prohibits the city from using federal funds to support its domestic partnership program. Like federal funds were ever used for D.C. domestic partnerships. And because the Democrats are in the majority, this means that a fair number voted against us. 40 of them to be exact.

One has to wonder what the hell they were thinking.

One also has to wonder where the hell was Dick Cheney as gay families like his daughter Mary, her partner Heather and their baby Samuel were under attack.

John at Americablog has the full list of Dems who voted with the Republicans against LGBT families.

    am i the only one who “heard” obama say very loudly that he and his WIFE were tested for HIV – during the presidential debate on public tv?
    sounded like he wanted to make clear that he wasn’t being tested for any other reason – god forbid…

    I took it to mean that he had not cheated on his wife. There have been others in the blogosphere who heard that as something else.
