Microsoft Abandons Gay Rights Bill

PastorOfMuppets Re:Back scratching politics (2304 comments)

Not likely. Microsoft employs a lot of people in the state of Washington (this is a state bill), and the taxes that they and their employees pay finance a not insignificant portion of the state's budget. Basically, if Microsoft wants legislation bad enough, all they have to do is threaten to leave the state and they will get it. Boeing has pulled that trick many times.
