Unless gay people have to pay them. That is my takeaway on the Windsor/DOMA decision. Too bad they couldn't declare death taxes unconstitutional.
Prop 8? Roberts is a real statist. His dissent in Windsor was because "Congress passed a law."* His opinion on Prop 8- "I can't hear you, people who voted for Prop 8. We have people for that, and because it passed, you aren't them." Didn't Republicans in Congress have to pony up for DOMA lawyers themselves, since Obama and Holder were too busy spying on us to defend laws in court?
*Funny, sounds familiar. At least he didn't declare gay marriage a tax. Although calling it a "mandate" would have been punny.
