ENDA

Senate Passes Employment Non-Discrimination Act

This legislation outlaws discrimination against  LGBT employees.

But House Speaker John Boehner, the top Republican in Congress, has declared his opposition, expressing fear the measure would trigger lawsuits that would hurt businesses and cost jobs. He is expected to refuse bring the Act before the House for a vote.

It is unconscionable to allow one man to prevent a vote on an issue of importance. I'm not sure what rules are but suggest a rule that if a number of Representative (say, 10) ask for a vote on a measure the Senate has passed, a vote would be held.
