Do hetero “partners” get the same benefits?
If not, then this is CLEARLY discrimination against heteros, isn’t it?
In a leftist utopia, some groups are more equal than others.
Does that mean I can add my mom to my plan?
It would appear that hetero partners get it, too. In fact, it appears that this is so broad as to include people you happen to carpool with.
Yes, it appears you could add your mom to your plan.
She’ll be so happy.
If she lives with you, yes.
Happy? Isn’t “gay” another word for “happy”?
I don’t think it specifies anywhere that the person has to live with you. And wouldn’t this cover bigamists, too?
Not a chance. She’s a Democrat. Where does it say she has to live with me?
Gay activists always whine: “Well, what’s it going to cost YOU if these people get rights and benefits?”
Here ya go.
It really doesn’t cost much. There aren’t that many gay couples in the Va system. The problem is that there are a lot of poor workers that will try to scam the system. We want have this system for a year before Wayne Lee Ray will have two girlfriends and his elderly momma and sick brother on the system. Va allows for pre-existing conditions,
Kaine trying to slip it in the backdoor.
I see Greg got the first comment.
The intent of this amendment is to assist employees in providing health coverage to other adult individuals who reside in their home but are not eligible for the Health Benefits Plan for State Employees.
The intent of this amendment is to assist employees in providing health coverage to other adult individuals residing in their household, and the dependents of those other adults who otherwise meet eligibility requirements, who are currently not eligible for the Health Benefits Plan for State Employees
It would cover any adult living in your house, and all of their children.
So if you have a big house, and your brother's family moves in, you can get the whole family covered.
I didn't see the details, but I wonder if this means that people who rent a room to a public employee could also get medical coverage.
It gets even better when you drill down further - it covers any dependents of your live-in, too. So, Mom and her other four underage kids move in with you, and our taxes cover them ALL.
OK, I added my comment.
