John Boehner Steals From U.S. Cops While Obama Deports Gay Spouses

As the legal challenge to Prop 8 continues, Equality California backs away from a repeal campaign in 2012. More Republicans than ever back marriage equality, but deportation still looms for legally married LGBTs. And why should the nation’s cops have to pay for John Boehner’s $1.5 million anti-gay lawyer?

    @christopher di spirito: Oh, we are playing the Republican game of holding Obama personally responsible everytime the civil service in a federal bureau enforce the law on the books? Sorry dude, but there is a DOMA law. Obama didn’t write it. It says marrying a same sex American under foriegn or state law does not give a foreigner the right to immigrate. Bad law? Sure. Yoru weak attempt to tag Obama with it? Silly.

    @Kurt: DOMA’s repeal should have been Obama’s top legislative focus in his first hundred days in office.

    Now, he’s lost the US House to the queer-hating Republicans. DOMA ain’t going anywhere “dude.”

    What exactly has Obama done in three years other than pass a shitty healthcare law that contains neither Single-Payer or an expansion of Medicare for all. It will likely be turned back by the SCOTUS because forcing Americans to purchase healthcare is a violation of the Commerce Clause.

    Yeah, Barry’s been a great president. A great failure.

    @christopher di spirito: Since I don’t feel like coping the whole darn page I’ll just post the link of his accomplishments
    Have he given us everything we wanted? Nope will he I doubt it. But has any other administration done more for us in 3 years? That would be no. This is a disconnect I see to often everyone just expects Obama to somehow become supreme ruler and just zip everything though that they personally want passed. Our government doesn’t work that way things take time and not everyone on either side of the isle agree’s with the things we want. I’m 32 years old and I have seen more things happen to benefit us in these past 3 years then I can ever remember happening and we can’t relent we have to continue to work together to change the hearts and minds of our fellow Americans if we want to achieve our goals. A little less whining and a bit more action will go a long way towards those goals.
