Lizzie Warren is now calling for reparations for gay couples because they couldn’t file joint returns before gay marriage was legal.
She seems to be free and loose with your tax dollars including Medicare for All, free tuition for all, reparations for Blacks and gays and a partridge in a pear tree. She has proposed a wealth tax that would drive the rich out of the country and their companies with them. Once that happens, how does she pay for everything?
By taxing you and me at 100% and that still would not be remotely close to paying for her radical agenda.
Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has added “gay and lesbian couples” to the growing list of groups for whom she would supportreparations.
Citing a tax code that was “discriminatory” against non-heterosexual married couples, Warren tweeted Saturday, “It wasn’t until marriage equality became law that gay & lesbian couples could jointly file tax returns—so they paid more in taxes. Our government owes them more than $50M for the years our discriminatory tax code left them out. We must right these wrongs.”
Warren’s Refund Equality Act, introduced June 20, would retroactively apply “married-filing jointly” status — along with refunding the amount overpaid — to same sex couples who were married in states where such unions were recognized prior to the federal government doing so in 2013.
“The federal government forced legally married same-sex couples in Massachusetts to file as individuals and pay more in taxes for almost a decade,” Warren explained. “We need to call out that discrimination and to make it right — Congress should pass the Refund Equality Act immediately.”
According to NBC News, such reparations could run up a tab of $57 million or higher.
