    Simple instead of dealing with what I say your trying to distort it.

    That= You lost the argument. You threw it all away for cheapness.

    There is a pressure to marry from a moral standpoint and we naturally get married in a church. "Now it's ok for you two to have sex."

    What does the government have to do with this? It's none of their business.

    The only thing the government might get involved in is helping any citizen responsible for raising a child by handing out tax breaks.

    Not this special interest gets benefits but not this one.
    Gay Marriage is not special interest. You as a heterosexual will be free to marry the man (if you are male) or female (if you are female) you want just like a gay person can.

    See, EQUALITY.

    So, instead of trying to correct me by being more artilulate and giving a more detailed and intelligence answer in support of your views, you duck out of a discussion by declaring yourself the 'winner'.

    First, I didn't realize it was a contest with rules and a scorecard.

    Second, get over the sting of having your own words used against you. You didn't really know what you were talking about, you stepped in it, so live with it and move on.

    It's not the end of the world, son.

    To drive up the costs of healthcare for the private sector to make the desire for public healthcare grow.
    Lets also remember, that when you do your taxes, if you have kids under 18, and you are eligible for CTC (Child Tax Credit), they have a dropdown box, that asks how long that child lived with you during the year. This dropdown box is done in monthly increments.

    So the "partner" in this story doesnt really have to be a full time resident of the place you call home, to get the benefit, IF it winds up like any other tax related issue. Just check off "6 months" and you get the benefit.

    But yeah, I think you hit the nail on the head Rev, this is more to do about healthcare then anything else.

    Just more COST, coming from Team Obama.

    The best way to reduce these costs is to take the benefits away from married couples and give them to no one. That'll save the taxpayers lots of money

    Nope nobody won anything.
    YOU threw away your argument by delving into the sewer.

    Comprehend what people say instead of distorting what they say to act like an ass.
