Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., reintroduced a bill on the campaign trail this week, which could mean $57 million in tax refunds for married LGBT couples.The Refund Equality Act, which was originally introduced in 2017, would allow LGBT couples who were married prior to the 2013 Supreme Court strike-down of the Defense of Marriage Act in U.S. v. Windsor to amend tax returns from the time that they were married. Prior to 2013, 10 states had legalized same-sex marriage, but were required to file their federal taxes as individuals. Following the 2013 Supreme Court's decision,

When we adopted our daughter in 1990, adoption expenses were not tax deductible. Now they are. I want my reparations. The names of over 100 of my ancestors are on the memorial wall in the Holocaust Museum in Kraków, Poland. I want reparations for them too. We could keep playing this game until everyone now on the planet and those yet to be born (if they aren’t aborted) are due reparations of some sort. Best solution - stop the idiocy!

Seriously, Dims. This is more transparent than Hillary's negligé on a steamy evening. If you're trying to buy votes, why not just come out and make an offer the electorate can't refuse? You could offer every voter $1000 to be collected (as an IOU, of course) upon voting for the Democrat nominee for president. That way you wouldn't have to go through all this "reparations" nonsense. Just admit you're buying votes - and just do it! We're sure it's entirely legal...

This is what I mean when I say leftists hate God so they become gods unto themselves. If she wants to give them reparations in the form of tax refunds, she'd better consider how such a thing would anger the rest of us taxpayers who deserve massive refunds due to overtaxation. Especially since there is no such thing as two men or two women entering into what is a real marriage. God gave them male and female. Period, and since the beginning of time. These perverts are acting like earls and kings pitting us against one another by giving away resources that don't belong to them, destroying the world, and angering a very just and merciful God. Their lives are life vapors, as with the rest of us, but they leave hell to pay for generations after they're gone. Disgusting individuals.

And the Republicans are the party of division? The Dems are creating an environment of division that won't go away. I want reparations for all of the women who went to work during WWII, like my mother, who gave up their jobs when the men came home, was hired again but lost all of the benefits they had accrued and had to start over. Also, for mental anguish for me because I wanted to be a Bat-Boy for the Phillies and take Shop in HS instead of Home Economics but wasn't allowed because I was a girl.

The democrats have finally hit the wall with their identity politics. With front-of-the-line preferences for everything, along with free food, housing, cable TV, and finally Obamaphones, the democrats pretty much exhausted their "free stuff for black people" policies. So, what do give to someone who has everything? Cash (reparations). And hey! What the heck! If it works for them, why not free cash for LGBTQRST? And Bernie, not to be outdone, offers free cash to college educated millennials (student loan forgiveness). You can identify which identity group the democrats most want to attract by how much free cash they will offer them this election.

A parade in Highmore, South Dakota celebrating the 50th Annual Settler’s Day had one float that stole the show. The float that got the most attention showed Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in prison with President Donald Trump standing outside the case, his hands up as if presenting the prisoners to the crowd. (Photo) “I just wanted to put it out there, it was just my view that I feel that they should be charged, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton,” Jeff Damer, the float’s creator, told KSFY. Damer revealed there was some hesitation because he did not want to come across as racist by throwing Obama behind bars.

That’s been playing out over the weekend already, but one interview that Carroll did on Friday night caught my attention. She appeared on MSNBC and one of the expected subjects came up. She’s made a very serious charge in her upcoming book, far beyond any sort of harassment or inappropriate touching, so is she going to bring charges? Apparently not. That’s her call to make, of course, but why? It’s her reason

Young people are growing less tolerant of LGBTQ individuals, a jarring turn for a generation traditionally considered embracing and open, a survey released Monday shows. The number of Americans 18 to 34 who are comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people slipped from 53% in 2017 to 45% in 2018 – the only age group to show a decline, according to the annual Accelerating Acceptance report. And that is down from 63% in 2016. Driving the dilution of acceptance are young women whose overall comfort levels plunged from 64% in 2017 to 52% in 2018, says the survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD.

Rep. Ilhan Omar said she doesn’t understand why Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling immigrant detention facilities “concentration camps” has been so controversial, seeing that people are “being concentrated” there. “There are camps and people are being concentrated,” Mr. Omar told The Rebel Media on Friday. “This is very simple. I don’t even know why this is a controversial thing for her to say. “We have to really, truthfully speak about what’s taking place,” the Minnesota Democrat said. “And this is why it is really important for us to abolish [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and make sure that we have an agency

I thought it was satire, something cooked up by his political enemies.You couldn't put out a less attractive video than the one Gavin Newsom did for illegal immigrants on Twitter, advising them himself on how to obstruct ICE from any deportation maneuvers. And sure enough, he wasn't hacked, it really was blue-checked him.(Tweet/Video) Leave aside the fact that he's the governor of a U.S. state, supposedly there to represent the interests of that state's citizens, rather than those of the foreigners who come here without papers, quite illegally, and run up the tab using his state's services. They're his constituents, too now, in fact, the ones whose interests he chooses

It’s an article of faith among Democrats that the President’s base consists primarily of white working class voters without college degrees, and that they must be won back in order to beat Trump in 2020. This is why Elizabeth Warren inflicted that cringe-making, “I’m gonna get me a beer,” video on a long-suffering electorate. It is why Joe Biden, who reputedly enjoys a special rapport with blue collar voters, is the frontrunner for his party’s presidential nomination despite his penchant for gaffes and plagiarism. Thus, during this week’s Democratic debates, the candidates will devote considerable effort to courting the “deplorables.” This will, however, be an exercise in futility because everything

Former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) offered some praise for President Trump, saying he’s energized a base of Republican voters who didn’t previously participate in politics. “What I think people get excited about is he's not taking any crap,” Ryan said Sunday in a wide-ranging interview with PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff. “I mean, he’s taking on political correctness, he’s taking fights that a lot of people want to see fought. The forgotten man that he speaks to is a person that finally feels like they’re being taken seriously, they’re being paid attention to. And he’s concerned about their issues.”
