Obama Must Get Behind (pun) The Gays - 100% Now!

In a letter on Feb. 20 to the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, an arm of the federal judiciary, Lorraine E. Dettman, assistant director of the personnel office, said,

“Plans in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program may not provide coverage for domestic partners, or legally married partners of the same sex, even though recognized by state law.”

Benefits are available to the spouse of a federal employee, Ms. Dettman said, but the 1996 law stipulates that “the word ‘spouse’ refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.”

This draconian provision is left over from the Bush Rednecks and their "Defense of marriage Act" - and Obama should throw it out with the other garbage he has already dumped from the deep shithole of the conservative agenda.

Mr. Prezidente - P;ease don't start playing patsy with the congress on core principles - the people are with you all the way - they know the GOP is pretty much a bunch of wack jobs.

Ben LaBolt, a White House spokesman, said: “While the president opposes gay marriage, he supports legislative repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act. He believes this country must realize its founding promise of equality by treating all its citizens with dignity and respect.”

So - you gotta follow through on your high principles:

And -stick it up the GOP's ass! (oops another homo pun) -Sorry...........
