We need to change the federal benefits for married people to benefits for a stay at home parent with minor children. If there is no child and if there is a child but the parent works there are no spousal benefits. Social security was not set up to have married people game the system. No one will want to get married if they won't get taxpayer money. The whole gay marriage issue goes awAy because it's all about Money. GIVEN THE CHEAPENING OF MARRIAGE EVERYONE WILL JUST GET MARRIED FOR BENEFITS

You simply must read Allahpundit's coverage of this defection parade.  It's hilarious.  He's even got a half-joking pool running on which Senate Democrat will be the next to "evolve," and when the announcement will come. Republican Senator Rob Portman opened the floodgates earlier this month by announcing his support for same-sex marriage (he has a gay son), touching off a stampede of Democrats into the SSM camp.  Among those who have abruptly changed their minds literally within the last two days : Claire McCaskillMark Warner
