Obama’s Pen May Shape Scope of Marriage Ruling
Keeping my fingers crossed that SCOTUS overturns the misnamed Defence of Marriage Act.
If the jus­tices do strike it down, they will sweep aside a law that has for years pro­hib­it­ed gay cou­ples from re­ceiv­ing a vast ar­ray of fed­eral bene­fits that mar­ried cou­ples take for grant­ed. But whether gay cou­ples ac­tu­al­ly get those bene­fits would de­pend on where they live — and how vig­or­ous­ly Pres­i­dent Oba­ma seeks to change the le­gal lan­guage that de­ter­mines whether a cou­ple is mar­ried in the eyes of the fed­eral gov­ern­ment.
