At a Human Rights Campaign event in Los Angeles, Biden called for passage of ENDA, the Employment NonDiscrimination Act, in the GOP-controlled House, where it is stalled and connected the dots between officially-sanctioned homophobia in Russia and its annexation of Crimea.
“As the great Soviet dissident Andrei Sakharov said, ‘A country that does not respect the rights of its citizens will not respect the rights of its neighbors,’ and we're seeing that today, we're seeing that today in Ukraine,” the vice president said.
