    Elizabeth Warren wants gay reparations

    The Dem candidates pulling out all the stops trying to get elected. Elizabeth Warren wants gay reparations-roll-eye-smiley-gif
    _______________

    Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has added "gay and lesbian couples" to the growing list of groups for whom she would support reparations.

    Citing a tax code that was "discriminatory" against non-heterosexual married couples, Warren tweeted Saturday, "It wasn't until marriage equality became law that gay & lesbian couples could jointly file tax returns—so they paid more in taxes. Our government owes them more than $50M for the years our discriminatory tax code left them out. We must right these wrongs."

    Warren's Refund Equality Act, introduced June 20, would retroactively apply "married-filing jointly" status — along with refunding the amount overpaid — to same sex couples who were married in states where such unions were recognized prior to the federal government doing so in 2013.

    "The federal government forced legally married same-sex couples in Massachusetts to file as individuals and pay more in taxes for almost a decade," Warren explained. "We need to call out that discrimination and to make it right — Congress should pass the Refund Equality Act immediately."

    According to NBC News, such reparations could run up a tab of $57 million or higher.

    They are trying to “out moonbat” each other for the nomination. The stupidity will be legendary if not entertaining.

    They are obviously trying to find and create loyal voter groups. How does this work when it comes to Donald Trump ? What would he have done instead if he had chosen to run as a candidate for the Democrats ?

    Instead of this why don't we go back and actually arrest anyone who broke each state's sodomy laws before this train even went off the tracks.

    There are or have been lots of similar laws involving heterosexuals in many states. I'm thinking that there are a lot of people that would be in trouble, especially among the older population.

    Pretty sure that doesn’t include the cost of reprocessing all those returns, both in the IRS and the accounting fees to figure out all those old tax filings. That would be an utter nightmare.

    That had better be put up to the taxpayers if it even comes close to actually being presented as a law.
