Skip to comments.Obama expands government benefits for gay couples (gay partners can be buried with vets)
Posted on 06/21/2014 9:24:57 AM PDT by plain talk
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.
Aiming to circumvent that issue, the Veterans Affairs Department will start letting gay people who tell the government they are married to a veteran to be buried alongside them in a national cemetery, drawing on the VA's authority to waive the usual marriage requirement.

Who is on top?
Who is on top?
and I bet theyre dying to be buried right here in Chattanooga, TN in a state where there is no same sex marriage...
Where we voted and passed a traditional marriage act years ago...
And which way do they face?
towards mecce of course
Why is Obama pushing so hard for the gayification of America? My guess:
1) he’s pushing hard for his own kind
2) indoctrination of youth in schools to provide for more prey
3) the gays can push the limits of society’s moral fratricidal to bring on faster disentigration of the infrastructure
4) to be seen as a hero by his peers and increase his celebrity status
5) to increase his voter base as all freaks tend to run together, and last but not least
6) more booty calls
Check this out- From Michael Yon- Ambassador to Thailand desecrates the flag.
I think we have a black Will and Grace in office except she stays for access to all the money, celebrity status, and the white glove treatment
Oh hell. I can already see 0 declaring that THAT flag is the new U.S. flag...
Anything done by a president can be undone by another president. This is not a law. It’s just the actions of a dictator.
The total break down of the traditional family will give the gov. total control.
Is there nothing that this evil man will not cheapen?
So they get a special right because they are perverts? What about couples that are not homosexuals? Can they be buried together? No.. Sounds like a special right to me.......
This will truly gain the huge backing of the American people who believe in “fairness”.
You passed a marriage amendment, but then chose Lamar! and Corker. It does not compute.
The answer to all obama’s executive (dictatorial) orders is civil disobedience. Just don’t what he says to do.
“The answer to all obamas executive (dictatorial) orders is civil disobedience. Just dont what he says to do.”
Excellent point. For some reason, this is beginning to remind me of a power struggle with a toddler (Obama). Let’s hope the adults win this one. Why does Obama have to cheapen everything, including, apparently, Arlington National Cemetery?
My post is serious, but I have to say, I felt compelled to answer you because I grew up in Des Plaines! :) My parents met Harry Caray in Sarasota during a visit to Florida.
That's cool. I'm not far from there. Oak Park, about 30 minutes away. I wish I had met harry, what a weird, funny great guy.
Ah Hell No!
