GOP controlled House fights back against marriage equality

by Thom Hartmann posted May 10 2012 4:17PM
On the same day that President Obama and the nation took a major step forward toward marriage equality – Republicans in the House of Representatives tried to drag the nation backward.  Hours after the President’s endorsement of marriage equality – House Republicans passed a measure in support of the discriminatory Defense Against Marriage Act – known as DOMA – which is a federal ban against same-sex marriage. 

The Republican measure also forbids the Department of Justice from using taxpayer funds to oppose DOMA.  Even though Wednesday was a historic day for the nation – with the President of the United States coming out in support of marriage equality for this first time in history – it’s clear that this will be a long battle before the LGBT community finally gets the civil rights it deserves. 


And we’ll need the President’s leadership – and grassroots pressure on all lawmakers until victory is achieved.

Listen to me live Monday through Friday 3 PM to 6 PM on WWRL AM 1600.
