Vividness, (gotta love how my Ipad renamed you! Won't fix it)

Perhaps you didn't read my post, or perhaps you don't know how most of us (sexual preference notwithstanding) have to finance health care. I am a straight man married to a straight woman. She doesn't work. I pay over $6000/yr plus per year for her medical insurance. If my employer supplied this as a benefit, I would GLADLY pay income tax on it. As it is, this comes out of my gross income - I am still taxed on it. This issue transcends (poor choice of words?) gender.


P.S. Gotta love the recent Supreme Court rulings! Still waiting for full equality for my gay friends, but the plaster is beginning to crack.
