Marriage: now even more taxing

    Market Watch: For two people earning $400,000 or more each annually, their tax bill could increase by more than $30,000 after getting hitched, according to estimates from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center based in Washington. “You’re better off not being married in a lot of cases,” says Roberton Williams, an economist with the Tax Policy Center, which just updated its marriage penalty calculator to reflect the recent tax changes. See the calculator here.

“Gay Marriage Advocates Lose By Winning” | Harry R. Jackson, Jr. at Townhall

    Harry R. Jackson, Jr. at Townhall: Homosexual activists achieved historic gains in the November 2012 election in the states of Washington, Maine and Maryland. These three notoriously liberal states passed laws extending marriage benefits to homosexual relationships by four to six percentage points. But will these legal victories ultimately deny them the sweeping Supreme Court decision they long for?

That Tail Ain’t a Leg | Doug Napier at Townhall

    Doug Napier at Townhall: Today, homosexual activists have tried to co-opt the allusion to slavery to advance their demand to redefine marriage to include same-sex couples. Nice try, but if Lincoln were chiming in, he would undoubtedly bring up Euclid. A union of two men or two women is not the same as the union of one man and one woman, and all the rhetorical sleights of hand can’t change that biological and social reality. It’s one of those “self-evident truths” Lincoln referenced.

    KTAR.com (2/14): “There is a potential concern for businesses that have offices in multiple cities across our state to have unequal enforcement of the law throughout our state,” Legal Consultant Joseph La Rue, with the Alliance Defending Freedom said. La Rue said the new proposals may make hiring decisions difficult for multi-city companies. The Alliance Defending Freedom is a nonprofit religious rights group dedicated to defending religious freedom, marriage and family, and pro-life issues. La Rue also opposed the new proposals because of potential costs to small businesses if further protections are added to the city ordinances. “What we’ve seen in other places where amendments like these are passed is the cost to small business owners goes up,” La Rue said. “There is the threat of litigation anytime [businesses] fail to hire someone who is a member of the protected class.”
