Tammy Baldwin Tells John Boehner ENDA Will Pass: ‘Just Bring It Up For A Vote’ (Video)

U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin last week in an MSNBC interview told John Boehner that if he would let ENDA come to the House floor for a vote it would pass. “Just bring it up for a vote,” the Democrat from Wisconsin urged. Hours later, the historic legislation passed the Senate.

Of course, with about two-thirds of all Americans supporting the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, including more than half of all Republicans, there’s a very “good” reason the Speaker of the House won’t bring ENDA to the floor. Speaker Boehner knows it will pass, and even though he is the top Congressman in the people’s house, he thinks he’ll lose his title — or his office — if it does.

LOOK: Senate Just Passed ENDA — How Did Your Senators Vote? Here’s The Full List.

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act, like the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell before it, has become the perfect metaphor for why Washington does not work for the people. The number of people and organizations who do not want ENDA passed is so minuscule, most already believe it is the law of the land.

Except John Boehner, who, one week ago today, issued a statement claiming ENDA already is the law of the land.

Remember the well-known adage:
Those who do not learn from the mistakes of the past have a tendency to repeat them.

Enter John Boehner and the Republican House majority.
