    And it's a huge punishment. Singles making over $200,000 vs married peeps making $ 250,000 pay an additional tax of .9% the same goes for capital gains tax which is 3.8% Talk about marriage inequality. No wonder why family oriented ( married) republicans were against it.

    Because marriage under the law has never treated partners as equals. This should deter any gay professionals from marriage.

    I like how you added "professionals" in there. Like somehow those gays who still choose to get married are unprofessional? I was just curious..is there a criteria that must be met to be considered a gay "professional"?

    Hey, I'm married in the state of New York and we are paying more in state taxes together than we did individually.

    Doesn't deter me from wanting to be married, though.

    Straight couples who feel victimized can suck my dick (metaphorically speaking).

    Straights have been whining about the IRS marriage penalty since forever...until they sell their house at a profit.

    Professionals as in guys making over six figures a year as lawyers and doctors do. As a single guy making under $200,000 there is no additions tax but a married couple making $ 400,000 they will pay an additional $4,000 plus an additional 3.8 percent on capital gains. Why write a law that discriminates?

    Of course, I'm paying for everyone and have no health care at all. That is not fair either.
