  •  That's because it isn't a rollout, but a rollback. (4+ / 0-)

    They are rolling back a thrown together interim set of bullshit rules that tried to differentiate between married people living in a state that recognizes their marriage and married living in a state that doesn't. Those rules were always extra-legal and unsupportable and were a hodgepodge of garbage made up on the spot by various agencies in some sort of ludicrous effort to  apply the DOMA slapdown only in those states which agreed with it. They're now giving up on that but trying to make it sound like they're doing something meaningful and progressive.

    That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
