So legalizing gay marriage was just a sinister plot to tax them more?/sarc
Gay marriage is like pot: legalize it and then tax it?
It makes for an interesting situation, for sure.
The gay lobby is incredibly powerful. Probably second only to the pro-2nd Amendment one. AND they have the full backing of the press, not the vilification that gun rights lobby experiences.
So we’ll see what happens when gays, still euphoric over their newfound “right” to marry, run smack dab straight into the marriage penalty.
Unintended Consequences 'n all that! ROFL!!
In reality, the homo's expected to get all the "benefits" without having to pay the taxes? ROFL!! SUCKERS!!!!!
Why the sarc? It’s perfectly reasonable for a politician to quietly design a tax that will affect a group clamoring for an issue only if that group gets their issue.
Once the group gets what it wants, it is now beholden to the politicians who championed their cause. Those politicians want things in return. Sometimes the contstituents know what that thing is, sometimes they find out later.
I would assume that an actuarial or accountant would have informed the designers of the plan that the more married people the more tax revenue would be receive. If the base is enlarged, the system will be “better” funded.
