US House Engages In More Useless Anti-Gay Maneuvering

Republican-led House of Representatives is still more concerned with pushing useless social initiatives at the taxpayer's expense, as seen yesterday when it adopted the 2012 defense budget with a couple added anti-gay amendments.

It's extremely doubtful that the amendments, which include hampering the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and DOMA related restrictions for military chaplains, will make it through the Senate, much less get White House approval.

Laura Murphy of the ACLU had this to say:

"'Trying to throw a roadblock up to derail "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" repeal at this point is a desperate attempt to postpone the inevitable,' Murphy said. 'For nearly 20 years, lesbian, gay and bisexual service members have been forced to hide who they are and who they love in order to serve their country. It was with the will of the president, the uniformed and civilian leadership of the military and Congress itself that "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" was repealed and its implementation will continue to move forward successfully despite the attempts by some House members to disrupt it.'"

Translation?  The House is lamesauce and should probably work on something that the American people want... you know... like jobs?
