Is There a REAL REPORTER in the House? Part 2

Don't you love it when "news stories" lie?

In the budget he proposed last week, Doyle called for offering limited legal protections for same-sex couples, such as allowing domestic partners to take family and medical leave to care for a seriously ill partner, make end-of-life decisions and add health care coverage

"Limited"?? LIMITED???

Ms. Forster, do you have ANY idea what that "health care coverage" is going to cost the taxpayer?

Doyle is not "limiting" this proposal in any way whatsoever.

If you are a public employee--State, Municipal, or County--and you have a "partner," whether homosex or heterosex, you can put that partner on the taxpayer's health-insurance tab.

Oh, and by the way, it's been about a week since LRB put out the memo mentioning this little provision.

Were you on vacation?
