    on other issues. DOMA prevents same-sex couples from filing joint tax returns and from paying for benefits like health-insurance out of pre-tax wages, creating economic disparities between same-sex couples and equally situated opposite sex coupled employees.

    Companies like Google, Barclays and others have fixed that by paying their same-sex couples the difference, so their take home pay is the same.

    It seems to me, if a company has the desire to create an equitable work environment they are able, their hands are not tied, particularly one of Boeing's means.
