HB2 is a $3.7 billion-dollar boondoggle

North Carolina's HB2 is an exercise in cruelty — and could cost the state as much as $3.7 billion dollars over 10 years. Republicans seem fine with that.

The Associated Press analyzes the cold cost of having the infamous bathroom bill, HB2, on the books. The $3.76 billion in lost business over more than a decade is staggering, and points to the ture urgency of an uncomplicated repeal of this bad law.

JOINT STATEMENT FROM DNC CHAIR DONNA BRAZILE AND DNC LGBT CAUCUS CHAIR EARL FOWLKES:

"Instead of honoring the memory of those we lost at Pulse two months ago, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio have come to Orlando to headline a gathering of some of the nation’s most incendiary anti-gay bigots. We at the DNC join all people of good conscience in expressing our solidarity with the Orlando LGBT community as they continue to grieve the deadliest shooting in American history. We suggest Trump and Rubio disavow these anti-gay extremists who have likened gay people to Nazis and characterized HIV/AIDS as divine ‘penalties' for being gay. Failing to do so will be yet another example of the utter lack of judgment that makes Trump unfit to serve."
