I did NOT say not to issue Marriage licenses to same sex couples-- THAT is now the law of the land. This argument is about POLYGAMY. The court opened it up. It's anything goes, so Polygamy is a more natural marriage them same sex. So there should be NO Restrictions on marriage, consenting adults after all. Otherwise it's discrimination and if you disagree your a BIGOT. And wait until the…

It's quite possible. Genes do not always inevitably have their effect. The effect could depend upon the environment. I could be carrying and pass along whatever gene(s) necessary for homosexuality to my children even though I'm straight.

So, it is my OPINION that this is wrong in your eyes. Everyone has an opinion and has the freedom to voice their ideas and concerns. You won't see me getting bent out of shape when you express yours, just have the courtesy and freedom to allow me to express mine. There are verifiable instances where scenarios already exists, or have been tried, just look them up. Just saying that a plural marriage…

What's the compelling state interest for not issuing licenses to same-sex couples, and why do you think it's necessary to achieve that interest?

I don't there is a religion that condones "anything goes". Kind of defeats the purpose. So "condoning freedom" is not the goal of most any religion.

Hospitals lobbying to extend income tax hike

1 year, 2 months ago from thesouthern.com

From from thesouthern.com:

One of the state's major lobbying organizations joined forces Wednesday with Gov. Pat Quinn and his fellow Democrats in a campaign to make the state's temporary tax increase permanent.

The Illinois Hospital Association -- a major donor to lawmakers on both sides of the aisle -- said it is backing the governor's call to maintain the state's current income tax rates in order to avoid cuts to health care and other programs.

“This issue is not just about hospitals and health systems,” said hospital association chief Maryjane A. Wurth. “It is about schools, public safety, roads and yes, health care. Without the continuation of current tax revenues, all of these areas will be subject to severe and destructive funding cuts that will hurt Illinoisans.”

Wurth's statement echoes the unified income tax message being voiced by Quinn and top Democrats in the legislature. If the temporary income tax hike is allowed to decrease from its current 5 percent rate to 3.75 percent on January 1, there will be devastating cuts to a wide range of public services, they say.

The IHA, which represents more than 200 hospitals and nearly 50 health systems across the state, said hospitals already have absorbed hundreds of millions of dollars in cuts to Medicaid and Medicare programs.
