The lgbt community hasn't forgotten what you did in Indiana, Mike Pence

So according to the incoming Vice President Mike Pence, the first order of business will be "repealing and replacing" Obamacare, with a heavy emphasis on repealing but short on details about replacing. I don't think it's going to be as easy as they think.

It's interesting that it was Pence who led the press conference talking about this and not Trump. It sends the message that Pence will be doing the legislative work while Trump basks in the "glow" of being president. Not surprising.

And even though all eyes will be on the battle over Obamacare - and a few others - I want to let Pence know something:

The lgbt community hasn't forgotten what you did in Indiana.

For those who have forgotten, check out this article from 2015 which basically breaks down how Pence was caught in a HUGE anti-lgbt lie about his homophobic "religious liberty" bill:

Mike Pence's claim about his anti-gay law contradicted by picture of him with lobbyists

And then let's not forget Pence's attempt to defend the law on This Week, which went over like a lead balloon:

We know that a national anti-gay "religious liberty" bill will be coming. Don't think we aren't ready.
