Barney Frank told The Washington Blade this week that LGBT rights issues has "zero chance" under a Republican controlled House of Representatives. Color me surprised.
...Frank also said he was confident that the Senate, of which Democrats retained control, would join President Obama in blocking any anti-gay bills that conservative Republicans might introduce over the next two years.
He added, "It will be a status quo. They don't have the votes to hurt us but we don't have the votes to advance anything in the cause."
"The Republicans have become much more anti-gay in their voting patterns," he said. "There is zero chance of anything good happening with Republicans in control of the House."
However, Republicans won't be able to repeal Washington DC's marriage law. Obama would never sign such a law and it wouldn't make it through the Senate according to Rep Frank.
