    Reparations for all the people!

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) proposed the Refund Equality Act in order to provide past tax refunds to LGBTQ couples. From NBC News:

    “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 said in a statement. “We need to call out that discrimination and to make it right — Congress should pass the Refund Equality Act immediately.”

    A report by the Joint Committee on Taxation released Tuesday estimated that taxpayers who were in same-sex marriages prior to the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act in 2013 would be eligible for up to $57 million in refunds. Warren introduced a version of the bill in 2017.

    The Supreme Court “struck down the Defense of Marriage Act” in 2013, which then allowed gay couples “to file joint federal tax returns.” Then in 2015, the Court legalized same-sex marriage in America

    The campaign of government gifts is still going strong I see. The strategy seems to be to get rid of Biden and offering freeloaders a much in financial gifts as possible.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    We need to get the Cherokees in OK riled enough to scalp her and confine her to the reservation.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
