It helps prevent another near financial collapse. A near collapse that sent the Dow plunging.
If another bail out would be needed, it wouldn't come from the individual taxpayers.
How does this legislation help prevent a financial collapse?

Far from preventing future bailouts, the legislation institutionalizes "too big to fail."

If another bailout is needed, who the hell do you think would pay?

PS: The "plunging Dow" presented a great investment opportunity. We could use another (and may get it).

But marriage does have legal bearing in things such as tax law.
The entire problem could be solved by eliminating the use of the word "marriage" & substitute "civil union" in all references to licenses & legal matters.
People would have a "civil union" aspect & a "marriage" aspect (if they so desire) to their weddings.
Marriage should be a private contract between individuals. They can call it whatever they choose.

"Marriage" should have no bearing on tax law. Why should anyone pay higher or lower taxes based on their marital situation, including the "marriage penalty."

Get the government out of our bedrooms by getting the government out of the marriage business.

I love Liberals/Democrats how they attempt to erase their Racist Past!!
Here’s a Short Quiz: whose party attacked civil right marches with Fire Hoses and K 9 Dogs, the party that blocked access to Blacks Students from entering an Alabama University, the party that Wire Tape Martin Luther King’s office?

Don't be so sure. Police departments around the country are already armed to the gills with military weapons and vehicles that have no sane use against civilians.

I for one, do not believe that all instances of are genetic, but rather just another form of leverage being used as rebuttal. for those who choose alternative lifetyles outside the realms of what is perceived as the "norm", in defending the chosen lifestyle of.

Selective genetics via scientific alterations, is warped.

Depends on the potential parents. And that's where Science would have a problem IF it wants to continue the Born Gay DNA Argument and Research.

The "Born Gay" theory/hypothesis was put forth by a Homosexual Scientist. Not exactly unbiased. And certainly not hard Science or Scientific Fact, at present.

If Science did isolate the "homosexual gene", potential parents wouldn't necessarily have to pass on reproducing or opt for gene therapy to eliminate homosexuality.

They could just terminate the pregnancy through abortion.

PS Ever see the movie "Gattaca" ?( 1997 ~ With Ethan Hawke, Jude Law, Uma Thurman ).

The homosexual community faces a problem here. If science could isolate the "homosexual gene", would potential parents pass on reproducing if faced with a homosexual child? Or would they opt for gene therapy to eliminate homosexuality.
Just wondering if science might end homosexuality, unless it is a lifestyle choice and not genetic?

The 'problem' could be solved by getting government completely out of the marriage business. Because it is none of their business. Just like how much I make or my wealth. It's none of their business. FairTax.org

Only came to my attention through personal experience.
Identical Twins, one is Homosexual, one is Heterosexual.
Despite exact same DNA. So ... Just an off topic observation.:)
<quoted text>
Good morning.

Interesting indeed. I just read where there have been identical twin studies where one twin had the genetic condition progeria and the other didn't. Yet, no one is questioning the link between genetics and progeria.

Sorry, page couldn't be found.

However, did you know this is the fourth year in a row this president hasn't submitted a budget before the deadline of February 1?

He said it would be ready sometime in April.

If he wasn't squawking so loud and blaming Republicans for not passing a budget of spending cuts that doesn't exist, his procrastination might be more forgiveable.

NBC - The widespread lingering caution from consumers and employers alike more than three years after the Great Recession officially ended is now one of the biggest hurdles to a more robust recovery.

...If the Great Recession officially ended three years ago, what do we call it now?
