Blubber baby John Boehner thinks the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a.k.a EDNA, is not needed because "ample laws" already exist to protect LGBT employees. *Eye roll*
"Although the administration insists it will work with Congress to pass legislation in lieu of an executive order barring federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT workers, Boehner seemed unaware of ENDA in response to a question from the Washington Blade, saying, “I haven’t seen the bill. I haven’t thought much about it.”
'No one should face discrimination in the workforce,” Boehner said. “There are ample laws already in place to deal with this. Having been the chairman of the Education & Workforce Committee, I’m quite familiar with employment law. But if there are further changes that are necessary, I’m sure the committee will look at it.'"
Obviously Boehner is blind to the reality that is legal in 29 states to fire someone because they're gay, and legal to fire a trans person in 34 states. Hopefully that''ll give him something to think about.
