President Obama Expands Government Benefits For Gay Couples

The Obama administration also ordered the Veterans Affairs Department to start letting any gay person who tells them they’re married to a veteran be buried next to them in a national cemetery, allowing the couples to circumvent the usual marriage requirements. The Social Security Administration agreed to start processing some survivor and death benefits for those in same-sex relationships who live in states that don’t recognize gay marriage. The Labor Department also assured that they were following through on Obama’s recent order and would begin drafting rules to ensure that the Family and Medical Leave Act applies to same-sex couples.
