Out financial guru Suze Orman is dedicating tonight’s episode of her CNBC show to the economic impact that marriage equality has on LGBT couples, including estate taxes, health insurance pensions, and social security.
“I am asking all of you to join in on this fight, so to speak, that we have,” she says on the epsiode, “Marriage equality, the ability to get married—should be a right for every single person in America regardless of sexual orientation.”
There’s a special significance here: Orman’s audience isn’t the usual Glee-watching teens and twentysomethings who expect to get a pitch for tolerance and gay equality. And let’s face it, high taxes and financial burdens are issues conservatives can appreciate easier than progressive politics.
The Suze Orman Show airs Saturdays at 9pm on CNBC
