Welcome to the under-the-bus club!

The House Rules Committee releases the reconciliation bill through which it will vote on the measure that passed the Senate in December. As expected, the LGBT- and HIV-specific provisions that passed by the House in November will not be included in the final bill, reports HRC Backstory.

Expanding the Early Treatment for HIV Act would allow states to cover early HIV treatment under Medicaid instead of withholding treatment and funding until patients develop full-blown AIDS. That’s very important for black and Latino gay men, who are disproportionately without insurance and often learn they are HIV positive in later stages. Rod 2.0 reported in December and February the Senate and the Administration were likely to kill those provisions.

Can’t wait until the White House and Congress start “working on ENDA” once they’re “done” with health care …

I reckon that by the time they finish making bipartisan “compromises” on ENDA, the only minority group it will protect from discrimination will be rich white men.
