Obama Budget Pushes Gay Couple Benefits

President Obama wants to change the Social Security Act to include benefits for same-sex couples, even if they live in states that do not allow same-sex marriages. His $4 trillion budget includes a measure that would allow for gay couples to move to states without recognition of same-sex marriages and still enjoy the benefits, which are not currently permitted. The proposal, of course, would have to make it through the Republican-controlled Congress.
