Chicago Young Republicans Weigh In

Democrat Fleecing of the Gay Community - When Will It End?


Symbolic gestures like Obama’s paper-tiger presidential memorandum granting same-sex partner benefits to federal employees sans health care benefits and “discussions” on repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” are hardly accomplishments at this point in history. According to recent Gallup Polls, 67% of Americans believe same-sex partners should receive employee benefits, INCLUDING health insurance, while 58% support REPEALING “don’t ask, don’t tell” now. Yet, despite public opinion in their favor on these two issues, the Democratic controlled federal government is doing nothing because, quite frankly, they are not held accountable. To be blunt, the Obama administration’s recent actions show how little sincerity it has in fulfilling its many campaign pledges to the gay community, notably repealing the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

$250,000 Date & We Footed the Bill

Last week President Obama took his wife on such an expensive date that even Donald Trump would be impressed. It was the Big Apple, and the grand total was $250,000. That’s right, in a recession, when there is a 9.4% unemployment rate, where so many Americans cant even afford to pay their mortgage, our President takes time out of his busy schedule to take the First Lady on a date that could pay the annual salaries of over 11 families of four living at the Federal Poverty Level ($22,050 annually).
