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!
