rumpelstiltskin: kingoomieiii: rumpelstiltskin: It's not that I hate black people, but I'm afraid if we pay for their kids health care too we're just going to blow the budget right out of the water. We should do the responsible thing, and test this law out on regular regular people first, see how it works. In a few years, maybe, we can have a discussion about whether it makes sense to require black couples to participate.

Does it still seem like a sane, legal idea?

I didn't say anything about sanity or legality. I was talking about responsibility, an idea which I know you liberals are unfamiliar with.


You didn't say anything about reality, and idea which I know you conservatives are unfamiliar with.

What if the child is albino? or left handed? Surely THEY aren't covered, right?

cman: I wish it worked that way, I really did with all of my heart. It does hurt me. I love my sister a lot (she is a lesbian, I am not homosexual) and I want her to be happy. Until they grant her the same rights that hetero couples have, I will be saddened and angry at the system.


blah, blah, blah.

get to the important part.

is your sister hot?

EZ1923: DarwiOdrade: So you're afraid of something that isn't going to happen and isn't part of ACA? The provision only allows people to buy health insurance through their employer for their partner's kid, and doesn't put any burden on taxpayers.

Isn't this the story of ACA, though? From "Death Panels" on down, this is it in a nutshell.


I just worry about the mandatory penis pumps that Obamacare distributes to middle schools. I don't think my tax dollars should go towards that kind of deviant behavior.

Right. Save the penis pumps for the elderly on Medicare.

Some where in America, taxes are paying for a child to recieve timely healthcare, and until they are found and this abomination is ripped out by its roots, I'm living in chains!

Us conservatives can buy whatever reality we want.

And now, thanks to the ACA, you can buy health insurance for your gay lover's kids.

See, like I said, I don't hate same-sex couples. But here you are, calling them slurs like "gay lovers". Who's the open minded one now?

Why would you think "gay lover" is a slur, unless you have a problem with homosexuality?

It's up to them what they want to be called, and I know for a fact they like to be called same-sex couples. It's in my employee handbook, among other places.


There's nothing quite like a blanket generalization to make you sound reasonable and intelligent. My gay lover and I both think so.

BarkingUnicorn: Wait for the GOP to introduce a bill defining "stepchild" their own way.


Introduce a bill? Pfft. They'll just make it an amendment to some completely unrelated, popular legislation put forward by Democrats.

eraser8: cman: While anything that furthers homosexual equality is something that should be the number one priority right now, I am a bit worried on principle.

What happened to you? You used to be a model right wingnut hater?

Did you hit your head?


There was a thread recently where he lied down on the couch and told us he was a libertarian trying to shake off the last of his unwanted republican thoughts.

Tell me if I'm being unfair.

The fact that the President can change the definition of a word is something that I think he should not have the power to do. If the executive could change the definition of words at will, what is to stop them from taking rights that Bush couldn't even take away from us?

/Keep on lobbying your congressperson for homosexual equality
//We are not a truly free nation until homosexual couples are treated the same as hetero as it puts one class of people over others

I read they are extending them to illegal same sex couples who are atheists as well.

And borrowing money from Iran (through the Muslim Brotherhood) to pay for it.
