Happy ‘You Can Visit Your Dying Partner In ICU’ Day!

Boy is today a perfect time to fall ill! Because President Obama’s new hospital visitation rules, which require any medical facility plugged in to Medicare and Medicaid (read: almost all of them) to grant same-sex couples the same rights as married breeders, take effect today. I know you’re going to be too busy celebrating that you’ll forget your employer’s shared health care benefits that are paying for your partner’s emergency room visit are still taxed like you have no relationship at all. Oh happy day!
