  •  there were 2 same sex amendments- (0+ / 0-)

    one would protect same sex couples who are legally married in their jurisdiction (either one of the US states that permits same sex marriage or a country that does so) and the other was for self-certifying same sex partners.

    Did they not adopt either one of these, not even the more narrow first one?

    If that is the case, I assume Pres Obama and Congressional Democrats do not mind if Democratic supporters of marriage equality now join forces with various Republicans in the Senate and House to kill this bad bill.

    Or, do they seriously expect supporters of marriage equality to help them pass this bad bill?

    Accept that you are a second class citizen and help us pass this bill to help everyone else but not people like you - is that what Schumer, Leahy, Obama and Pelosi expect?
