With Nancy Pelosi’s dangerous Equality Act facing a vote on Thursday in the U.S. House, it has become even clearer that this is a clash between D.C. lobbying powerhouses and grassroots America.
Two major factions are pushing the Equality Act: the LGBT lobby and big business.
The LGBT lobby, led by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), has been ratcheting up pressure from the Left. But they are joined by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has been pushing Republicans to support the bill, despite the fact that it imperils religious freedom, parental rights and more.
The Chamber has even threatened to “score” this vote – meaning that each representative’s vote would be factored into the Chamber’s rating of how pro-business that member is.
But while this strange-bedfellow coalition works the D.C. swamp, grassroots America is heating up in strong opposition to the bill. Congressional offices report that this bill is generating the most constituent opposition to a bill that they have seen in a long time.
