We all pay for things in the tax codes which we don't agree with and this must be one of the smaller measures of money I can think of. How about someone who has no children paying school taxes all through the years? It's all, or should be, for the greater good.
People like things that are structured and the government is that. Imagine our country if each of us had to figure out our fair share of taxes without the charts to go by. We really have no idea how our government works and what they do in order to keep a well structured society in the land. It's a easy as 1-2-3. They figure stuff out and we pay for the thousands of things they have figured out for us in order to live successfully.
It minimizes it because it's not the same as the term marriage and it should be because that's what it is...a marriage! Why make it different from the git when it doesn't need to be. The differences are already built in because of the same sex aspects. Why go any further than that?
I don't know that I could expalin it in a whole bag of nuts but it is my understanding that no one will be uninsured and no one will be turned down due to pre-existing conditions and/or because they are already sick. I also understand that they are wanting to keep the cost of medications down but I do not know how they will accomplish that. I understand that if you like your present policy you may keep it and it can travel with you if you are employed elsewhere.
So did countless others when they passed the desegregation acts in Congress. They weren't wanted either but they broke the glass ceiling on that after many, many years of fighting for equal rights. Gays must also fight for their rights and one day, whether you like it or not, they will have them. You don't skirt the issues, you meet them head on.
His words certainly do not appeal to the heart...he's just rude! "It's My Party & I'll Cry If I Want To." It is not the way to act in a Town Hall meeting or any other type of gathering where the people meet with their representatives. All questions should be fielded whether they're opposed to your views or not.
I disagree Joe...it is about benefits but all manner of such. It's mostly about human rights and there should be no line of distinction drawn whether a person is striaght or gay. It is also about the love that exists between two people and therefore one wishes to be certain that the proper rights are included in their relationship. A relationship of great longevity can go awry in the end without the necessary 'contracts' and benefits you speak of and that is just not right nor is it fair to either party.
