Gay marriage will lessen the deficit
How you ask? First, we sucker all gay couples into legally tying the knot, and then hit them with the "marriage penalty" when April 15th rolls around. This may not sway the hardened social conservatives, but likely will win over some fiscal conservatives. It all comes down to packaging the issue in a way that has resonance with the opposition. Do you have any bumper sticker ideas for selling the idea of gay marriage? Here's a few, "Tax Gays More: make 'em get married";"It's time gays and lesbians pay their fair share"; or "Close the gay and lesbian loophole-- Sock 'em with the marriage penalty!" Ideas?
