End DOMA now. It is not fair to grant benefits to some and not all. Unfair.
What a disgusting debate audience….Mr. Hill is risking his life for these people?
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.

“Republicans hate social engineering, unless they’re doing it.”
“One thing independents like to be independent of is government meddling in their personal lives.”
“The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.”
