Why Is It Always The Republicans

DENVER — Colorado Senate Republicans have put an end to a Democratic attempt to make it easier for transgender people to change their birth certificates.
A Senate committee voted 3-2 Wednesday to reject a bill to allow people to change the gender listings on their birth certificates without getting surgery. All three Republicans on the committee voted against it.
And the bill would have also made it like Connecticut law where a new birth certificate is issued.

You know at one time the Republicans were behind legislation, they saw it as a means to help trans people get jobs, but now the Republicans are on a crusade against anything LGBT. It should be interesting to see how they vote on Connecticut’s bill because the Public Health Committee vote was bipartisan, will it continue to be bipartisan in the House and Senate?
