Obama Throws Gays Under The Bus, AGAIN! – Drops ALL LGBT Health Care Provisions From His New Health Reform Proposal

In an attempt to save movey and kiss moderate and ReTHUHlican ass (The man is an freakin spineless IDIOT) all Gay-related provisions in the original House health Care Reform Bill have been dropped from a new version announced by Barack Obama yesterday that closely resembles the Seante watered down, do nothing version.

From MetroWeekly:

“Most LGBT and HIV activists had supported the House bill because it included key LGBT specific provisions, including provisions. In addition to the data collection, it prohibited discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in the provision of health care; enabled people with HIV and low incomes to obtain Medicare coverage earlier in the course of their illness; and eliminated the tax that gay employees must pay if their same-sex partners or spouses receive health coverage from their employers’ plan. Straight employees don’t pay that tax but, for gay couples, the coverage is characterized by the federal government as additional income for the gay employee. Tammy Baldwin said Monday she would ‘continue to fight for all of my priorities in the final health care reform bill, including those related to LGBT health.

Fierce fucking Advocate my ass.  That bus we all thought Obama was throwing us under is turning out to be a steamroller.  But I am sure the HRC will spins this as “Don’t worry, the president still has his secret plan for us,” or some sort of shit like that while Joe Solmonese is invited to hear the Cast of “GLEE” sing at the White House Easter Egg Hunt.

The absolute gall and nerve to sacrifice LGBT lives to appease the  Right Wing is just disgusting and not what we voted for and something that we should not stand for.
