(POLITICO) In a blog post, President Barack Obama is encouraging Congress to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

“Right now, in 2013, in many states a person can be fired simply for being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender,” Obama wrote in a blog on The Huffington Post published Sunday.

“It’s offensive. It’s wrong. And it needs to stop, because in the United States of America, who you are and who you love should never be a fireable offense,” the president added.
