Short gain = more spousal benefits for same-sex couples

Jim Brown - OneNewsNow - 1/13/2009

A spokesman for the Family Research Council warns that a new law signed by President Bush last month erodes the notion that marriage is a "unique" relationship in American society.

The homosexual activist group Human Rights Campaign is "hailing" President Bush's decision to sign the Worker, Retiree and Employer Recovery Act of 2008. One provision of the measure, signed into law by Bush on December 23, makes it easier for homosexuals to leave their retirement savings to their same-sex partner in the event of their death, without the partner having to pay a tax penalty.
