Four Dems Fight Bill That Excludes Trans Rights

Non-Inclusive ENDA Headed To House

Despite hundreds and thousands of outraged cries, the House Committee on Education and Labor voted 27-21 to pass a non-inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act. The bill, which tosses trans folks on their asses, will now head to the House of Representatives.

As PageOneQ points out, four Democrats voted to stop the bill from going forward: New York’s Yvette Clark, Loretta Sanchez of California, New Jersey’s Rush Holt and Ohio’s tiny presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich.
