Traitors, Spies, Murderers, Husbands
You want to know how the federal government thinks about the spouses of gay people? Congressman Gerry Studds' legal husband will be denied all his spouse's pension, thanks to Bill Clinton's and the Republican Congress' 1996 Defense of Marriage Act. The only other Congressional spouses treated this way are those convicted of treason, espionage or murder.
Yes, I feel rage. Rage at every politician who voted for the despicable bill, and rage at everyone who supported it.
