Indiana GOP Retreats, Leaving Jeb Exposed
by Deacon Blues
Indiana’s legislative leaders released their revised religious freedom law today, which reportedly prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and precludes a defense from civil actions arising from such alleged discrimination. The legislative leaders’ assertions that they meant this all along only underlines that the original bill fully supported by them and signed by the sad-sack Mike Pence didn’t have such protections to begin with, intentionally so.
And yet Jeb Bush went all in and endorsed the original bill and Pence’s actions, and now wants to scurry back behind a rock and say “never mind”. Sorry Jeb, you’ve been revealed to be nothing more than another pandering Republican.
But by all means, let’s keep talking about Hillary’s emails and not the GOP’s overt social agenda for 2016.
