Only when one parent gives up their income to take care of a few dependents do married couples pay less than single folks, because then you have one income supporting yourself and your spouse and your dependents instead of only yourself.
I single person with 3 dependents pays about the same taxes as a married single-income couple with 2 children.

And of course Obama is going to raise taxes in response, which history proves will only decrees federal income, further disabling our government's ability to pay it's mounting bills which it shouldn't have made in the first place...so he'll borrow his way through another election, but where does that leave us in years to come? Up ****-creek without a paddle.

Why do you assume that gays don't have children?
Some gays have children from previous relationships and others adopt or use surrogacy.
In more sober threads I've asked this board for actual numbers, but it's been 3-4 years now....still no data.
Some token gay couple is not sufficient to establish an exemption for all of them. I needs to be the majority or marriage needs to be re-worked so that anyone raising children (even if they are related/interracial/underage/same-sex/etc) can marry.
Gays raising children is a problem this country needs to correct, but the modern gay 'marriage movement is not the answer. The state has no interest in relationships not raising children, so keep your right to privacy.
Likewise, medical care does need reform, but Obama'Care is not the right answer, but I digress.
