BREAKING NEWS: SENATOR LEAHY (May) HIDE(S) "HATE BILL" IN PENTAGON BUDGET
What do homosexual rights have to do with Pentagon spending? Everything, if you're a Democrat trying to hide an unpopular "pedophile protection" bill from the American people. On Monday, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) spoke on the floor of the U.S. Senate and argued essentially that since he couldn't get 60 honest votes to pass the "Punish Pastors, Protect Pedophiles" hate crimes S. 909 as a stand-alone bill, it should instead be attached as an amendment to S. 1390, the National Defense Authorization Act. Staffers for Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) then admitted the homosexual bill could be attached and voted on as early as Wednesday or Thursday. We may have just one more day to act.
By hiding the hate bill as an amendment to Pentagon spending, moderate Democrats (and all but two Republicans) are faced with a difficult choice: either pass the Pedophile Protection Act or STOP PAYING OUR TROOPS serving overseas. Faced with a "poison pill" many moderates may falsely claim they have no choice but to swallow. We must demand they take a stand! We've identified 16 Democrats (plus the new Senator from Minnesota, Al Franken), who have NOT YET committed as co-sponsors to the hate bill. Unfortunately the two liberal RINO Republicans-In- Name-Only from Maine, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe have already co-sponsored the bill.
Title: A bill to provide Federal assistance to States, local jurisdictions, and Indian tribes to prosecute hate crimes, and for other purposes.
