HRC just released an analysis of the make-up of the 112th Congress, and how this may impact LGBT legislation. We've lost our lead in the House and are break even in the Senate. Translation: nothing will get done for LGBT equality (with the possibility of even back sliding) for at least the next two years.
According to HRC:
When anti-equality forces controlled Congress for a decade (1994-2005), they stymied any progress on LGBT issues, instead making attacks on our community part of their governing agenda. Among these were: attempting twice to amend the U.S. Constitution to deny marriage equality to same-sex couples nationwide; trying to strip federal courts of the authority to hear marriage equality cases; blocking DC’s local efforts to provide domestic partnership benefits to its employees; cutting funding for HIV prevention, research and treatment despite a growing epidemic, while pouring federal dollars into disproven abstinence-only programs that exclude or even denigrate LGBT youth; and standing in the way of openly-LGBT appointees.
