Dear Cambridge, MA…This ROCKS!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikInspiration

This is wonderful!

In Massachusetts, some same-sex couples have to pay a federal income tax that heterosexual married couples aren't subject to, but the city of Cambridge is doing something about it!

Public workers in Cambridge who put same-sex spouses on employer-provided health plans have been forced to pay an unfair tax on the coverage that can cost them $1,500 to $3,000 a year, but the city is going to pay these workers a stipend to offset the tax!

Here's what a city councilor for Cambridge had to say about it:

"Two people who do the exact same job should be paid exactly the same for what they are doing at work."

More from another city councilor:

"This is a city that models what equality really means."

Thank you, Cambridge! Yet another fantastic step in the right direction!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!

    I want to be the first person to comment before someone complains…. I love this! This is good because it is equality for all, and stuff like this is so unfair!

    Sounds SEEDY, GROSS, SCARY and DANGEROUS. DIRTY, SMELLY and YUCKY. Or was that just for the homeless people in Los Angeles, Mario? Fucking bottom feeding tool.

    THIS IS SUPPORTING AN IMMORAL, SICK LIFESTYLE

    Thats all very nice. But Id be more impressed if the MA Attorney General worked with the Feds to just equalize the repercussion on healh care coverage for partners, straight or gay.
