Refusing federal funds that provide life-saving care to people living with HIV could potentially affect thousands of low-income Louisiana residents. This discriminatory policy keeps low-income people living with HIV off of BlueCross BlueShield’s insurance rolls, perpetuating the deliberate insurance industry practice of denying coverage to those living with HIV that the Affordable Care Act was designed to reverse. Continuous coverage is critical for people living with HIV.  The health care crisis these insurers have created must be stopped."

  1. Correction: NOM is giving up on putting the INDIANA marriage equality ban on the ballot, not OHIO. There is very little identifying information in their press release, probably because they are so used to cutting and pasting after each successive loss. But, it does make a reference to Hoosiers which is an Indiana reference.

  2. Does Andy Towle enjoy supporting Katy Perry, a woman with a history of anti-gay songs?

  3. Would love to see Pink perform her song "Beam Me Up" during the In Memorial segment. Such a beautiful song would be very fitting as a tribute for those we've lost.

  4. It is going to be a tug of war between the business base and religious base of the party. The former is represented by people like Paul Singer, Tim Gill, to a lesser extent Apple, Microsoft, Amazon etc., the latter is NOM which acts as the fifth column of the Catholic Church. It may be more difficult for NOM to get donation since the Church now is busy hiding their money from rape victims. Funny the Church is now playing victim and accused the gays of undermining the Church by pushing the UN to issue a damning report on Church's abuse of children.
