Congress typically reauthorizes VAWA with broad support, but the legislation expired last year for the first time since its 1994 inception. The Senate passed a bipartisan bill with new protections for the LGBT community, Native Americans and immigrants, and House Republican leaders refused to bring it up for a vote, charging that it was politically driven. Instead, House Republicans passed their own bill along party lines without the added protections. In the end, neither side would concede and the both bills fizzled out along with the 112th Congress.
Dirk I'm going to have to side with the R's on this one. I'm not against LGBT community, Native Americans and immigrants having the same rights but if you try to stick these groups in with a bipartisan safe bill they had to know the R's would squawk.

Take out the additions and pass the bill.
