Republicans Stop Vote on ENDA
The Republican homo-hating machine just can’t stand the possibility of passage ENDA and are fighting tooth and nail to defeat the bill that would prohibit discrimination in employment based on sexual orientation. Its so typical of them.
From HRC Backstory:
BREAKING: Minutes ago, House Republicans used a procedural motion to adjourn the U.S. House as a desperate delaying tactic to keep ENDA from moving forward….
From the Library of Congress:
A motion to adjourn is a nondebatable motion to end the day’s session of the House or Senate or a committee. It sometimes specifies the time or day for reconvening, or makes reconvening subject to the call of Chair. Since a motion to adjourn is of the highest privilege, it must be voted on immediately. It cannot be offered in the Committee of the Whole.
Unbelievable. Our opponents are determined to make this a long, ugly debate…
