Lew said the regulations also make clear that legally married same-sex couples will be able to move freely throughout the country and their federal tax filing status will not change.

So how does that happen, if these people move to states who do not recognize their "marriages"?

Presumably they would file a joint Federal return and separate State returns.

I was also wondering how it will work in states that don’t support gay marriage, if they filed their federal return as “married, filing jointly”, then how will they file their state returns? Turbo Tax is going to have to come out with a whole new product “Deluxe Homo”.

The liberals are making this up as they go along. The liberals don’t care if they move to a state which doesn’t allow homosexual marriage. In such a case, the fact that they once lived in such a state, or were married in such a state, whether residents of that state or not, is good enough for the liberals.

Because what is coming is “full faith and credit”. This is a war lost.

Someone posted yesterday, and I agree, that many delude themselves that we live in a center right Nation. We do not. We are center left and like a wagon down a hill are heading Left Left Left. I don’t think some appreciate how far gone we are and there is no coming back. Oh we’ll win a little bit here and there. We may even take back the senate in (2014 though in 2016 we’ll lose 7-10 seats). But demographics and GOP ignorance have killed us.

There is no going back. And yes, I wont quit fighting either, but my America is gone forever. And so is yours.
