Reassured somewhat that President Obama stated that his administration will seek to repeal DOMA and getting in there, off-handedly, that he found it “discriminatory.”
I to believe that he is trying to step through the political morass to reach the goal, even if it doesn’t appear that way at this moment, but the timing will never be right and every day of delay is justice denied.
His explanation of why only partial federal medical benefits for spouses of gay and lesbian government employee was prohibitive because of existing law….wrapped in red tape…around institutionalized homophobia.
“This is only one step,” Mr. Obama said. “Unfortunately, my administration is not authorized by existing federal law to provide same-sex couples with the full range of benefits enjoyed by heterosexual married couples.”
In the words of the other great communicator ‘Mr. President tear down this wall.’ if for nothing else that the wallpaper is flaking.
