Claim has multiple problems
Constitutional Rights PAC
Paul Ryan "is one of only six House Republicans who voted for Teddy Kennedy's bill to force Christian employers to hire LGBT employees."
The asterisk: Federal agency interprets law to already provide protection
"In a majority of states, you can now marry freely, but can still be fired for who you love."
No specific coverage for trans-gender people
Wisconsin's non-discrimination law "doesn't protect members of the trans-gender community."
Similar language, but different context and intent
Says Bill Clinton signed a law "very similar to," and Barack Obama voted for a law "something like," Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
The times they have changed
Polls on legalizing same-sex marriage "are not dramatically changing."
Available evidence is to the contrary
Says attorney general candidate Jon Richards "went so far to say he would only enforce the laws with which he personally agreed."
Data collection required, but no requirement on health care workers
Says Tammy Baldwin introduced a bill that would require doctors and other health care workers to ask patients, "including young children, whether they are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or if they know their gender identity."
