Obama, Proclaiming LGBT Pride Month, Pushes Repeal of Defense of Marriage Act

Obama, Proclaiming LGBT Pride Month, Pushes Repeal of Defense of Marriage Act Wednesday, June 02, 2010 By Jane McGrath

(CNSNews.com) - Citing his commitment to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), President Obama on Friday issued a proclamation declaring June 2010 “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.”

The president also emphasized his intention to secure “adoption rights” for same-sex couples and end both employment discrimination against LGBT individuals as well as the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) compromise that bars homosexuals from serving openly in the military.

This is the second year that President Obama has declared June LGBT Pride Month, but it is the first time he has used the proclamation to call for repeal of DOMA.

“We see again president Obama trying to walk a tightrope on the marriage issue,” said Peter Sprigg, a senior fellow with Family Research Council. Obama “says we must give committed gay couples the same rights and responsibilities afforded to any married couple and repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, [but] he doesn’t say right out that we should change the definition of marriage,” Sprigg noted.

Obama, in poker parlance, is all in.

He has already decided that one term is it and is going full radical throttle before Congress turns.

I think a more practical gift that would show everyone what the gay community is about is a bunch of anally-used condoms. (Yes I know they don’t actually USE condoms but you get the imagery.) Along with a few Hep-C and AIDS home tests.

Notice that the left-wing have no problem in repealing an act of Congress. Hopefully that willingness will backfire on these perverts big time. It is time to support candidates for Congress under the condition that they will support repeal not only of the healthcare bill in full but of all and any of this sick, perverted fascist legislation that the democrats pass.

If any group has to claim they have "Pride"

They don't have it in the first place.

Like a whore proclaiming her virginity.

"Health Care Bills Contain HUGE Marriage Penalty (Update) December 9th, 2009 · 2 Comments

UPDATE 12/10/09 at 12:58 p.m. Central: Yes, this is the subject matter mentioned on Rush Limbaugh today.

By Allen Quist, Guest Blogger

There is a huge middle-class marriage penalty hidden in the House and Senate health care bills. The penalty becomes evident by evaluating questions like the following:

■How much would two single people, each making $30,000 per year, pay for private health insurance if the Pelosi bill was in effect now? The answer is $1,320 per year for both individuals combined (based on the premium limits and subsidies outlined on the charts on p. 3). ■But how much would they pay for the same level of insurance under the Pelosi bill if they were to marry? Their combined cost would then be about $12,000 a year (the estimated cost for private insurance).

This extraordinary penalty people will pay, should they marry, extends all the way from a two-person combined income of $58,280 to $86,640, a spread of $28,360. A large number of people fall within this spread. As premiums for private insurance escalate, as expected, the marriage penalty will become substantially larger.

Once the income of Americans exceeds 400% of the Federal Poverty Level, there are no limits on the premiums they can be charged, and their premiums are no longer subsidized. The poverty level is much higher for two people living unmarried as compared to the same two people being married. That is why citizens in many cases will pay far more for insurance if they are married. Why should married people be subjected to financial discrimination?

The Senate bill also creates a marriage penalty, in this case by imposing a new tax on individuals who make $200,000 annually but it also applies to married couples making $250,000 each year. This marriage tax on the affluent, however, is just the tip of the marriage penalty iceberg in the Senate bill.

The Senate bill stipulates that two unmarried people, 52 years of age, with private insurance and a combined income of $60,000, $30,000 each, will pay a combined cost of $2,483 for medical insurance. Should they marry, however, they will pay a combined cost of $11,666 for insurance—a penalty of $9,183 for getting married (based on tables at:"

http://healthreform.kff.org/SubsidyCalculator.aspx).

They're coming after the married folks to pay for Deathcare. That's where the money is.

I wish I'd thought of that, great line. And yes he is, he's decided to play to his communist/socialist base. Guess he knows he's a one term president, gonna do all he can in that one term. Sure hope the USA can survive Obama's one term.

I seem to remember Barack Obama proclaiming that he believed marriage should be between a man and a woman. Where did that pledge go to?

He sure has his priorities in order. I work with many democrats and union members who really love to hear these priorities clarified when I talk to them.

“Do you really think that it’s more important to demonize and attack the Boy Scouts of America, a private organization, for not allowing homosexual men membership for the sole purpose of having full access to the boys, and for having a requirement that its members believe in a creator? To praise, support and empower these same pedophiles and perverts by allowing them to teach the practice of homosexuality to our kindergarten and grade-school aged children in the classroom? To support Radical Islam in our communities by overlooking their constant hatred and attacks on all who disagree with them? To ignore who and what was responsible for the attacks on American soil on 9-11? To overlook Black Panther race crimes at our voting booths? To attack our own communities and laws over the criminal illegal immigrants who break them? And all of this and more while we are fighting two wars, watching the shoe drop on at least two more and sending your children and mine into debt to the tune of 13 Trillion Dollars?!?!??!!”

They usually have a look of total defeat when asked these questions. Or variations thereof.

Ain't it great how muzzies, Black chr*stians (or perhaps "chr*stians" should be in quotation marks), and homosexuals get along together so swimmingly? Never the slightest bit of tension or disagreement among them.

Hey, if everyone in the world were Black, moslem, or homosexual, there'd be no more wars!
