This is why the SCOTUS needs to get involved...but they keep putting it off.

Local governments and private employers should not be placed in the position of paying more for GLBT employee benefits than for heterosexual family benefits. This attempt to offset one inequality with another inequality cannot be sustained. The right approach is to eliminate the inequality imposed by the federal government.
