Capitol Hill Speaks Out on National Coming Out Day (pics)

Capitol Hill Speaks Out on National Coming Out Day
10/11/2012 06:27 by NOH8Campaign [last update 10/11/2012 09:06]

Today is NATIONAL COMING OUT DAY, and to celebrate this increasingly recognized worldwide holiday in recognition of the LGBT community, we at the NOH8 Campaign are proud to debut NOH8 photos of 26 Members of Congress that participated in our second NOH8 on the Hill Photo Session.

National Coming Out Day is held on October 11th each year, celebrating the coming out of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals and raising awareness for the ongoing fight for equal rights. NCOD marks the anniversary of the historic 1987 National March on Washington for Gay and Lesbian Rights, which demanded the government's attention to equal rights - so we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than by showing support for the LGBT community straight from Washington, D.C.! These Representatives are here to show you that they are listening, and they too are fighting.

Held this past September and organized by CA Representative Adam B. Schiff's office, this special bipartisan photo shoot was open to all Congressmen and Senators and was split between the FCNL Building and 402 Cannon House. Elected officials have now represented 15 states including Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont and Wisconsin, as well as the District of Columbia itself.

"Though both congressional photo sessions have been open to all parties in both the House and Senate, only Democratic Representatives have participated to date. We hope these photos inspire elected officials from all parties to participate in the future!" - NOH8 Co-Founders Adam Bouska & Jeff Parshley

D.C. officer has unexpected pit bull encounter

D.C. officer has unexpected pit bull encounter
October 3, 2012 | 6:00 pm

Star did exactly what you're supposed to do when you get lost. She found a police officer.

It was about midnight. D.C. police Sgt. James Black was stopped at a red light at 42nd Street and Benning Road NE, when suddenly a dog leapt through the open window of his unmarked cruiser.

The dark-colored female pit bull jumped on his lap -- and began licking his face.

"I went from being startled to laughing," said Black, who has spent 15 years on the force.

Scott Giacoppo, vice president of the Washington Humane Society, said he's never heard of a dog jumping into a police car for help. But "sometimes a dog senses when there are people who can help them," he said. "It's a sixth sense."

Romney’s Own Website Refutes His Claim About Tax Cuts For The Rich

Romney’s Own Website Refutes His Claim About Tax Cuts For The Rich
By Guest Blogger on Oct 4, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Tax cuts for the rich are unpopular, unaffordable and have repeatedly failed to deliver any measurable economic benefits to the rest of the country. So it’s no wonder that during last night’s presidential debate, Mitt Romney didn’t want to embrace a policy of massive new tax cuts for the rich. “I will not reduce the taxes paid by high-income Americans,” Romney said.

It would be nice if Romney really was abandoning the failed theory of “supply-side” economics, but his actual tax proposals tell a very different story. Below is a screenshot from Romney’s own website, taken this morning:

Tax proposals that would disproportionately benefit rich households are underlined. As you can see, that’s almost all of them. And what would all these tax changes mean for the bottom line at America’s ritziest kitchen tables? The Tax Policy Center estimates that the richest 0.1 percent of Americans would reap a $725,000 tax cut from these proposals.
