Obama will OK benefits for same sex partners for federal workers

President Obama will sign a memorandum Wednesday granting health care and other benefits to the same-sex partners of federal employees, this was said by two senior administration officials. The signing will take place Wednesday in the Oval Office. The decision was made after some harsh criticism over the Justice Department motion filed last week in support of the Defense of Marraige Act, which opposes same sex marraige. Since President Obama has taken office he has been critized by gay rights activists for not doing more faster. President Obama has spoken out many times in support of gay and lesbian rights but does oppose same sex marriages.

I just want to personally thank President Obama for inspiring not only a nation but a world of people! I get inspired and am in awe everytime I hear him speak. Thank you for that President Barack Obama.
