…..For these and many other reasons, we enthusiastically endorse President Barack Obama for a second term, and express the hope that his victory will be accompanied by a new Congress willing to work for policies that Americans need.
BUT….this does not grant equal rights under federal law…Federal Taxation laws are not the same for gay-marrieds vs. straight-marrieds..and inheritance taxes are also inequitable for gays….Gays have to pay taxes on the value of employer-provided benefits for the same-sex partner whereas straight-marrieds do not (unfair)…and federal employees cannot (because of DOMA etc.) obtain health insurance coverage for their gay-married partners…this is unfair and inequitable and very costly and harmful to gay-married families…Gay Marriage must be sanctioned by our federal government otherwise certain citizens are treated unfairly…the hateful and bigoted views of the minority should not prevent any citizen from equal rights and protections.
Gov. Patrick’s daughter is openly gay and the Governor is on the right side of history.
Well, I’m not surprised. Two friends told me that their US Multi-National employers are not filling open positions with US employees: Both are outsourcing the jobs to India and pushing more work onto the remaining US staff..this is how the rich get richer and the working class suffers. And, if your employer is General Electric (GE) then the contribution to the US Treasury is zero and the company actually benefits from ongoing Corporate Welfare.
Obama joins Wisconsin’s budget battle, opposing Republican anti-union bill.
Public workers sure need to pay a higher percentage of healthcare premiums and pensions than they do now. Enact a gradual increase and create new tiers for new-hires (with higher contribution percentages). The bully governor needs to back off and re-think his toxic ideas. Public servants are not villains but the GOP is certainly casting them as such.
