Who Is Obstructing Democracy? Let the People Vote!


Democrats are starting to accuse the GOP majority of "obstructing" democracy by preventing a vote.

But they continue to reject our call to let the people of New York decide this issue.

Who's really blocking a vote?

Frustration spilled over Friday as New York's legislative session dragged on without Senate Republicans calling a vote on a tensely watched bill to legalize gay marriage.

Republicans have yet to put the measure to a vote four days after the session was scheduled to end, emerging from daily closed door meetings without a consensus and charging that language protecting religious groups is not strong enough. Democrats and activists who support the measure are beginning to accuse Republicans of stalling. --Reuters
