GOP Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona has vetoed Senate Bill 1062, which would have make it okay for businesses to discriminate against gays based on the “religious beliefs” of their owners and employees. No soup (or wedding cake) for you!
As with Medicaid expansion, I hope other GOP governors will follow Brewer and do the right thing for their citizens.
