Speaker Boehner ‘Hasn’t Thought Much’ About Advancing ENDA

After refusing to sign an executive order that would protect employees of federal contractors from anti-LGBT discriminators, the Obama administration claimed that the “time is right” for a legislative solution, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). But House Speaker John Boehner (R) today claimed, “I haven’t seen the bill. I haven’t thought much about it.” Nine out of ten voters believe that the LGBT community already has federal employment protections, which is surely why Boehner didn’t want to sound opposed to the bill, but it’s unlikely ENDA could ever advance in Congress as long as Republicans control the House.
