I have written many times about why I support Obamacare.
And now – add one more reason to love Obamacare. This is a major step forward for gay and lesbian families; kids shouldn’t be discriminated against because their parents are gay. It’s just another step in the right direction. Politico writes HERE:
The Obama administration is giving a new health benefit to same-sex partners — and it’s built on one of the most popular provisions of ‘Obamacare.’ On Friday, the administration published a proposed rule that would extend one of the health care law’s best-known provisions — allowing children to stay on their parents’ health plans until age 26 — to same-sex partners of federal workers. The rule would extend eligibility in the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program to the children of an enrollee’s same-sex partner. It also would extend coverage in the federal employees’ dental and vision insurance programs.
