Upton’s vote against Pride
June 2019 is Pride Month.
Fred Upton celebrated by voting against U.S. House Bill 5 which was known as the “Equality Act” and was designed to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in government facilities and programs, and by owners and staff of privately owned “public accommodations.” Thankfully it passes 235 to 173 despite Upton’s opposition.
It’s important to know that Upton continues to toe the Republican party line with his stated opposition to the impeachment of Donald Trump.
In related news, Upton also continues his decades-long anti-environment agenda by encouraging additional greenhouse gas emission by voting against U.S. House Bill 9 known as the “Climate Action Now Act.” His vote was, again, in the minority.
