NYC Balances Checkbook, Discovers It Pays To Go Gay!

Same Sexy Marriages Nyc Profitable to the tune of 259 million dollars

Now this is a rallying point we can all get behind!!

Same sex marriages aren't only spiritually and karmically profitable, but they make sounds fiscal sense too!!

Mayor Michael Bloomberg estimates they generated over $250 mil in revenue for the city!!

He revealed:

“Marriage equality has made our city more open, inclusive and free — and it has also helped to create jobs and support our economy,” Bloomberg, 70, said at a news conference in Lower Manhattan."

Wow!! That's astronomical!

These figures include not only the fees paid to the local government for the licensing fees but also all the tangential income associated with renting venues, hotel rooms, catering staff, etc!

While were happy it turns out equal rights makes good business sense, this was never a bottom line issue.

Council Speaker Christine Quinn offered a salient point in wake of these findings.

She said:

“What you can’t quantify is just the joy that has happened in New York City.. What better thing could government do than pass laws that make people equal, repeal laws that say some of us are unequal, and give families the opportunity to have that once-in-a-lifetime moment when a father can walk his daughter down the aisle.”

We wholeheartedly agree!

Congrats on that money you earned, NYC! We hope you buy yourself something nice!!

    That's fine, they'll need something to counter balance the loss of money if they push the soda pan through.

    This isn't news; this was predicted, ass clown. I bet the gays will generate even MORE revenue when they start divorcing. After all, they'll have to divorce in the places their false marriages are actually recognized. You post this shit and I laugh at you because you're so fucking transparent and stupid.

    People always talk about Romney with all his $$$$ and how out of touch he is with real people
    Well Bloomberg has a lot more $$$ and is a lot more out of touch
    I'M all for same sex couples enjoying the same benefits, but I'M not so stupid as to think it doesn't come with a hefty price tag
    Just this of Social Security benefits, health care,and all of the lawsuits, that will be tieing up the courts
