Afternoon Roundup: House Republicans Holding Firm to Their Discriminatory Treatment of LGBT Americans

Last night, House Republican leaders decided against allowing a vote on Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney’s amendment to the defense appropriations bill to prohibit #LGBT discrimination. In the wake of this weekend’s horrific shooting in Orlando, the House should be sending a strong signal that we will stand united against discrimination. Yet, once again, House Republicans are showing their true colors. But don’t just take it from us. These headlines speak for themselves:

Morning Roundup: House Republicans Shut Down Regular Order

Yesterday, Speaker Ryan and House Republicans decided to abandon their promise of regular order because they’re worried about having to show the American people where they really stand on critical issues. Despite promising an open appropriations process, Republican leadership is tightening their grip after their Members took down their own Energy and Water appropriations bill because it banned discrimination.

Bottom line: House Republicans are changing rules so they can discriminate. And Speaker Ryan’s decision to do so isn’t playing well with his own Members:
