House erupts in chaos after LGBT vote - POLITICO

   The GOP was barely able to block an amendment that would prevent those doing business with the federal government from discriminating against LGBT. When it appeared the measure would pass, seven GOP members were pressured to change to NO, leading to a 213-212 defeat.

The 13 Republicans who cast pro-abortion, anti-conscience votes last night are:

1. Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) (CO-06)

2. Rep. Costello (PA-06)
3.Rep. Carlos Curbelo (FL-26)
4. Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) (PA-15)
5. Rep. Bob Dold (IL-10)
6. Rep. Chris Gibson (R-NY) (NY-19)
7. Rep. Richard Hanna (R-NY) (NY-22)
8. Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) (FL-13)
9. Rep. John Katko (NY-24)
10. Rep. Martha McSally (AZ-02)
11. Rep. Patrick Meehan (PA-07)
12. Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) (NY-23)
13. Rep. Elise Stefanik (NY-21)

The majority of these Republicans say they are pro-life, and many are in swing districts. They’ll tell you they were most worried about attack ads from Planned Parenthood claiming they voted to “allow employers to punish women for their reproductive health choices” or some garbage like that.

I don't know about anyone else but I am sick to death of elected officials demanding that they be treated special because of their own sexuality preferences.

Aren't our elected officials especially on the left side supposed to be the party of tolerance. They should be tolerant of their fellow neighbors views that ones own sexual preferences should be kept to themselves and now paraded about in public.

We have come to a point that there needs to be greater push back to these progressives or we allow like our own Governor has stated 'there is no place in NYS for conservatives' and he wishes to rid all us from our own homes unless we bow and say 'thank you' to these ilk.

I for one applaud our Congresswoman for standing up to these zealots, what on earth does this LGBT business have to do with the National Security of America.

Anyone, anyone?

7:06 You make no sense. Exactly which vote or which bill do you disagree with. We understand you are a confused Democratic, but please stop with the code words or lingo your party is forcing down your throat. Anti-conscience, give us a break.

Your post is most difficult to follow and I pretty much doubt that anyone is worried about attack ads by the PP abortion activists. It's really about the white females of your party and yourself included that want to abort as many minority babies as they can, cleanse society per se. The founder of PP despised the minorities or the offspring from those couplings. Of course you will never admit this will you.

Mr. Stefanik voted "Yes" on the Maloney amendment to the bill. She and 28 other Republicans actually voted "Yes" with 183 DEMS, and it passed, But, then GOP leaders got 7 GOPers to change their vote to "No" and a new count: It failed - dirty pool as it were. She made a good vote - good for her. Sadly, 8 did not cast a vote... cowards or absent, I guess????

Why the obsession? You never had it with Owens?

When does the little glob of cytoplasm become a living humanoid? The answer is very difficult to find. Abortion, too many times, is killing a complete human baby. Too vote for abortions is agreeing to murder.
