Obama Acting Like a Republican Homophobe

This is just so, so wrong it’s inexcusable that Obama refuses to stop it:

President Obama disappointed and vexed gay supporters on Wednesday with his decision, conveyed to activists by a senior adviser, not to sign an executive order banning discrimination by employers with federal contracts.

The executive order, which activists said had support from the Labor and Justice Departments, would have applied to gay, bisexual and transgender people working for or seeking employment from federal contractors. Current law does not protect against discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity, and legislation to do so, which Mr. Obama endorses, lacks sufficient votes in Congress.


Employers who get “federal contracts” are employers who get our tax dollars via those federal contracts.  An employer who gets so much as a dime of our tax dollars should not be permitted to discriminate against taxpaying American.  Period.

I’m disgusted with Obama (Mr. Constitutional Lawyer) for not wiping this off the books once and for all.  If doing away with this isn’t a core democratic (and Democratic) value, I don’t know what is.
