Land of the chimps is replacing USA.
The ruling does not apply to state taxes. So, a same-sex couple that has been married in a state that has redefined marriage, but lives in a state that has not redefined marriage, would file as married for their federal taxes and as single for their state taxes.
How could that be a problem?
Aren't you glad the feral government's bureaucracies single-handedly decide social issues for us? Don't you wish they could arbitrarily decide everything for us?
Repeal The 16th!
Maybe in the grand scheme of everything, the gay marriage issue should have been revisited. In retrospect, so much time and policy has been directed at 2% of the population, of which, only a small percentage will ever “marry”. Given that the amount of broken families in this country and the problems of poverty and crime that result, the effort to address gay marriage seems well out of proportion to the real problem in this country.
I have a dog that has been humping my leg. I feed and house him. I take care of his medical bills. Seems to me the IRS is opening a door that good old Rover can pass through.
Heck, what am I saying, they don't care about the 1st, 2nd, or 4th Amendments either.
0bama swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the U.S.. Even to a neophyte of government, he and his administration have abrogated their responsibilities.
Impeachment must be considered in the House of Representatives. Paging Mr. Boehner, please pick up the pink courtesy telephone in the lobby.
that’s so the IRS can collect more taxes as one homosexual loses part of his deductions
welcome to the marriage penalty, pal
Said it before... any government that equates two deviant homos as being the same as a husband-and-wife is a government that is neither worth respect nor preserving. Better the whole country burn to the ground than embrace this kind of evil.
Against the defense of Marriage Act.
Now the IRS comes out the closet. We knew they were rogue and without need of jury, perhaps not even legally founded, part of the conspiracy of lies and fake good sounding titles all government critters depend upon for their few pieces of silver of treason.
They can do whatever they want in charitable contributions to their sbirs from hell against the wishes of the states and the constitution.
What was that Liberaltarians? I thought you said ‘marriage was a state issue’
and pardon my french
Of course they will. Law, schmaw. The law is whatever they say it is at any given time.
We should have passed a Marriage Amendment years ago. Polygamy is next.
This will be pushed on to these states in all other areas: employer insurance, medicaid, state inheritance issues, etc. Count on it.
In a tragic, indirect sort of way, all this was Romney’s fault. First, for ushering in the new paradigm of “same-sex ‘marriage’” in America (yes, he did it - he didn’t have to); then, by running for president without a backbone to win, and destroying every other conservative candidate who could have won.

Amazing how a tiny percentage of the population who define themselves solely by perverted sexual practices now run the show. For how long, though?
If anyone wants on/off any of my ping lists, freepmail me.
BTW accusations that "we" who are opposed to pretending that marriage means two perverts of the same sex "marrying" each other want a Huge Nanny Fedgov - your argument that the fedgov should "stay out of marriage" is specious.
You know the ones who made it a fedgov issues? Guess.
Mentally ill sex perverts, that's who.
