Not that Biden has a shot at ever being POTUS, but the game continues. And the creepy former VP revealed his top priority, should he get elected.
According to 12 News, Biden wants to help gays.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden declared Saturday that the Equality Act would be his top legislative priority, an effort to enshrine LGBTQ protections into the nation’s labor and civil rights laws.
The former vice president shared his hopes of signing the legislation as part of a keynote address to hundreds of activists at the Human Rights Campaign’s annual Ohio gala on the first day of Pride Month. In a half-hour at the lectern, his remarks ranged from emotional tributes to his audience and their personal endurance to condemnations of President Donald Trump.
“It’s wrong and it is immoral what they’re doing,” Biden said of the Trump administration. Among other Trump polices, he cited attempts to bar transgender troops in the U.S. military, allow individuals in the medical field to refuse to treat LGBTQ individuals, and allow homeless shelters to refuse transgender occupants.
“Just like with racial justice and women’s rights, we are seeing pushback against all the progress we’ve made toward equality,” Biden said.
The Equality Act would address many such discriminatory practices. It recently passed the Democratic-run House, but will not become law under Trump and the Republican Senate. That means LGBTQ residents in dozens of states are still subject to various forms of discrimination that are either specifically allowed or not barred by state law.
“It will be the first thing I ask to be done,” Biden said.
Does this include ALL gays or just American gays?
It makes sense that Biden help the gays. Because that may be the only group he didn’t hurt in his years as a politician. But I suggest the gays consider if they want Biden’s help. After all, he was tasked with curing cancer, and I didn’t see a whole lot of progress there.
Here was Obama in his final State of the Union. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden would spearhead an initiative to cure cancer.
“Last year, Vice President Biden said that with a new moonshot, America can cure cancer,” Obama said, before noting that Biden has worked with Congress to add resources for the National Institutes of Health. “Tonight, I’m announcing a new national effort to get it done. And because he’s gone to the mat for all of us, on so many issues over the past forty years, I’m putting Joe in charge of Mission Control. For the loved ones we’ve all lost, for the family we can still save, let’s make America the country that cures cancer once and for all.”
What happened after the announcement?
Biden did exactly what politicians do after such big announcements…nothing.
Cancer cure nothwithstanding, what I find most interesting is Biden has no interesting in doing things that help all Americans. Certainly I’m not surprised Biden picked a “special interest” group to target. And it was helpful that Biden was speaking to gays, when he said he would make them his top priority.
Any bets on what Biden says to blacks when he speaks to them?
