    go back to when it wasn't possible to legally marry your same sex partner (even though it should). But just taking the cases of people who were legally married in their states and then denied the inheritance tax exemption or social security or tax-filing benefits. I mean the widow in the case before the court had to pay something like $350,000 in inheritance taxes -- shouldn't she get back everything that she wouldn't have had to pay if her marriage had been treated the same as a heterosexual marriage?

    While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.
