Expanding tax benefits to same-sex partners of covered employees - as well as opposite-sex domestic partners or adult children of employees - is estimated to cost the government $4 billion over the next 10 years.

Well we can't have that, now. So the solution is to tax all health benefits like Obama plans to. Doesn't that cover all the people that don't have insurance now? Why is this even necessary with Obamacare on the way?

They won't stop until they've included pets and farm animals.

Hey, in some liberal circles those count as 'partners'.

Bawney Fwank saw an opportunity to have the taxpayer foot the bill for the 8 year old boy he uses to warm his feet and other body parts.
