North Carolinians irked that 'bathroom bill' not repealed in House special session
Frustrated North Carolinians took to Twitter Wednesday to demand the House vote to repeal the new law, with the hashtag #RepealHB2 becoming a top trend nationwide.
Republican legislators received much of the blame for the lack of action in the House, but there was plenty of anger directed at the entire state legislature as well. While Republicans were the most split on the matter of repeal, Democrats were not fully aligned either. Rep. Ken Goodman (D-Montgomery County), who favors keeping HB-2, tweeted that he could “think of a lot of better ways to have spent my day.”
Looks like there will not be a vote in the House on HB2 repeal. Can think of a lot of better ways to have spent my day.— Ken Goodman (@RepKenGoodman) December 21, 2016
Most of the dissatisfaction expressed online, however, was from state organizations and North Carolina residents taking on the legislature for its failure to repeal the law.
