"The White House on Thursday released a statement by Obama instructing his Health and Human Services secretary to draft rules requiring hospitals that receive Medicare and Medicaid payments to grant all patients the right to designate people who can visit and consult with them at crucial moments."
Show me where ANY patient over the age of 18 already doesnt have this right. Its irrelevant. Its an appeasement of the gay voting block. It is the equiovalent of telling minorities "look...we know we destroyed your families with welfare...we have no economic opportunities for you, and arent going to do squat to help you improve your life...but hey...we just named the ****tiest and most crime ridden street in your communituy after Martin Luther King Jr. So..pop a cork! lets have a party! And remember...vote early and vote often...vote democrat!"
OK...OK...Im wrong. This is a significant step for homosexuals everywhere. Now...why stop at gays...how about heterosexual boyfriends/girlfriends or live in couples? Dont they too deserve this awesome and significant executive ordered privelege?

Gay Woman Fights over Hospital Visitation Rights in Miami court | CommonDreams.org
If you are saying every single hospital already allowed gay visitation, you're mistaken.
But even if you weren't - so what? If so, this order is pointless, and therefore not news. Unless you oppose gay visitation rights, you should not even bother posting on this thread. Why does it bother you that Obama issued this order if you don't oppose it? If you don't oppose it, why do you care if Obama simply made it official?
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
