    In this one, the one you've apparently been ignoring. If the house takes a vote, the senate may revisit the issue (senate rules), if they do not allow it to the floor, the issue is dead. This is why Reid kept calling for a CR to make the house floor vote in the shutdown debate, even though he knew it would be defeated. Also why the house changed their rule and kept it from coming to a floor vote.

    Are you not reading these threads? It's been explained over and over again.

    I hope they do go on the record as being in favor of employment discrimination.

    At least you admit this is purely for the sake of hiding their political beliefs from the electorate.

    so rather then take any position on the bill, they would rather kill the bill and never address the issue at all?

    again the house republicans are cowards.

    I know what you said. This doesn't bypass anything. You have a misunderstanding of what the word bypass means.

    But I think you're wrong about what the GOP house will do. Enough Republicans have already voted for this bill that they really can't just ignore this and hope it goes away.

    This mantra has been spouted, repeatedly, with all other changes...."They will all pull the <insert discriminatory name here> card!" race, gender, religion, national origin, etc...

    Has it happened? Of course. Will it happen, again, of course. BUT, any manager/supervisor worth their salt will have all their ducks in a row BEFORE they fire someone. That is the way the modern world works.

    Why address it? The bill is a violation of human rights. It deserves to be ignored.

    He's probably one of those people who thinks a law like this makes it illegal to fire a gay person, or that it forces you to hire a gay person.

    Just stop with the Hypocrisy .... How many bills did Pelosi let die without them ever seeing the light of day? Standard practice from every Speaker throughout history!

    I am not even a republican, but, your trolling was just too annoying to ignore.
