Obama expands government benefits for gay couples

WASHINGTON — A year after the Supreme Court struck down a law barring federal recognition of gay marriages, the Obama administration granted an array of new benefits Friday to same-sex couples, including those who live in states where gay marriage is against the law.

The new measures range from Social Security and veterans benefits to work leave for caring for sick spouses. They are part of President Barack Obama's efforts to expand whatever protections he can offer to gays and lesbians even though more than half of the states don't recognize gay marriage. That effort has been confounded by laws that say some benefits should be conferred only to couples whose marriages are recognized by the states where they live, rather than the states where they were married.

In all fairness, Barry has been taking a lot of money from the homosexuals for his “fundraisers”. This is just the Kenyan’s way of “giving back” to the “openly gay” homosexual “community” and bath houses.

So if I live with my girlfriend, she gets nothing.

If I live with my boyfriend he gets all kinds of government benefits.

Now I understand.

How many more “benefits” can we bestow on these people short of giving them titles of nobility and crowns to wear on their heads?

He is doing the work of the Devil.

I daresay he knows it, too. Even some of the Pharisees did.

Amazingly.

And you are quite correct, BTW. All of his political accomplishments/tricks/games will not mean one thing.

Revelation 20:10-15

King James Version (KJV)

10 And the Devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

11 And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from Whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
