    Your article proves what I said.

    The rest of the article is slaying a straw man with regards to my comment.

    Perhaps to someone who didn't read it...

    Let me spoon feed it to you shall I? I've bolded the sections which clearly contradict your posts which simply parrots the far left false narrative.

    Quote Originally Posted by Real Clear Politics
    Comparing a political opponent to Hitler is obvious evidence of fanaticism, but we are living in hyper-partisan times. Rep. Henry Waxman’s official congressional website repeats the “seven years” calumny while adding that “the Reagan administration consistently refused to commit the resources and effort necessary to provide urgently needed research, health care, and preventive services.”

    For the record, Reagan first mentioned AIDS, in response to a question at a press conference, on Sept. 17, 1985. On Feb. 5, 1986, he made a surprise visit to the Department of Health and Human Services where he said, “One of our highest public health priorities is going to be continuing to find a cure for AIDS.” He also announced that he’d tasked Surgeon General C. Everett Koop to prepare a major report on the disease. Contrary to the prevailing wisdom, Reagan dragged Koop into AIDS policy, not the other way around.

    As for Waxman’s recollections about AIDS funding, he does an unusual thing for a politician: He’s forgotten the success he and other Democrats had in convincing Reagan to spend more money. The administration increased AIDS funding requests from $8 million in 1982 to $26.5 million in 1983, which Congress bumped to $44 million, a number that doubled every year thereafter during Reagan’s presidency.

    The rest of the article outs the lie and sets the record straight. Sorry you don't like facts but hyper-partisans rarely do.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Wow. WTF Indiana????
    You trying to out-religious the bible-belt states?
    Is Indiana becoming Mississippi2.0 or something?

    This is going to be interesting to watch.
    LOL
    its like Ive been saying. since equal rights is winning and winning big these desperate and blatantly vile and bigoted attempts to put up last minute and temporary road blacks will be coming up all over the place.

    But I welcome them!
    let these bigots put thier views out in the open for all to see, in the end these types of disgusting, anti-freedom and anti-rights moves will HELP further establish equal rights just like SSM banning did. Without mentally retarded, ignorant, hateful, vindictive, vile bigotry like this on full display put into bills or laws there would be nothing to take to court, have it destroyed using the constitution and equal rights and set precedence guaranteeing in the future stupidity like this cant even pass on any level

    COME ON BIGOTS RALLY, RALLY FOR YOUR CAUSE!
    which will actually help equal rights win even more, sweet sweet irony!

    I don't follow. Any reference to the "commerce clause" would ignore more than 99% of the actual sentence. What part of do you think should not have been ignored?

    GenCon, an annual $50 million gaming convention, is leaving the state.

    Salesforce.com had this to say:

    "We have been an active member of the Indiana business community and a key job creator for more than a decade," Scott McCorkle, CEO of the Salesforce Marketing Cloud division, wrote in a letter to Indiana lawmakers. "Our success is fundamentally based on our ability to attract and retain the best and most diverse pool of highly skilled employees, regardless of gender, religious affiliation, ethnicity or sexual orientation."
    Multibillion dollar company.

    The market speaks.

    thats not an answer LOL

    what if the "private" hospital is the only one around for miles or at least within distance to save your life?

    So if you were in a car accident, and needed treatment basically with in the next 1hour or you die but the only hospital withing the hour window wouldnt take you as a patient thats ok?

    This is the commerce clause:

    To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

    This is what the government sees:
