Its time for Obama to whip out his Presidential Pen and sign a proclamation to whip these three slacker federal agencies into shape

Unfortunately the Presidential Pen can't get this done. Only congressional action to remove the state of residence rule or the removal of DOMA will get the job done.

"Federal laws prevent the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Social Security Administration and the obscure Railroad Retirement Board from providing full benefits to gay couples who reside in states that don’t recognize their marriages."

COOL! I love it!

It makes you feel good that people you don't even know are being treated unfairly by the government? That's kinda crazy, don't you think?
