The Obama administration will work to ensure that gay and lesbian Americans are eligible to take leave from their jobs to care for a same-sex spouse, regardless of whether they live in a state that recognizes gay marriage, the White House said Friday.
President Barack Obama is directing the Labor Department to start drafting rules making clear that the Family and Medical Leave Act applies to same-sex couples, allowing gay and lesbian employees to take unpaid leave to care for a sick spouse regardless of where they live. The move comes three years after the Obama administration stopped defending the Defense of Marriage Act, which lets states refuse to recognize gay marriages performed in other states.
The White House is promoting the move as part of Obama's push to expand protections for gays and lesbians by allowing same-sex couples to take advantage of the same federal benefits available to married heterosexual couples.

At least this doesn’t apply to my company. Unless he “makes” it apply by exec order.
“Hi boss. Can’t work today. Sore rectum.”
And Lord knows that disease and mental illness are hallmarks of the homosexual community. they need a lot of time off.
Sheesh. It’s a good thing that all of our problems are solved so we can devote our attention to sick time for homosexuals.
Does this fag ever spend time on anything other than what concerns homos or minorities. You know, the president of all the people who spends 99.9% of his waking hours on confrontation matters rather than making life better for the entire population. Hint, leave office.
Now we know why his one eye was closed yesterday.
And, as American productivity declines even further.... More jobs will move to China. Or wherever...
Hi boss. Cant work today. Sore rectum.
You’re fired. All you ever do is bitch about every ass ache....
The spawn of Satan speaks..........
Bammy is just making sure Queers have enough free time to download and enjoy the queer porn which those nasty, narrow minded, employers would otherwise not allow on work time.
Homos take sick days as couples? Sounds like too much drama for any employer to have to deal with.
baraq is the friend of homos and muslims.
Kind of a strange set of friends don’t ya think?
Ok, they are all very sick, after all.
