holden 4 years, 10 months ago on Obama says gay couples deserve same rights as all

Gay couples do not have the same rights as everyone else. They can not cover their partner on insurance. They have to jump through hoops to ensure their partner can make medical and financial decisions for them. They have to hide their relationships in some places out of fear. How can two people loving and caring for each other be wrong. I am not talking sexually because what two grown consenting people do in their bed is not my business or anyone elses. This country needs to worry more about finances right now than if two consenting adults want to marry or not. This is just silly! I know someone will post what is in the Bible and that is great I love the bible it is the best book in the world. But I am not here to judge anyone.


holden 4 years, 10 months ago on Mo. lawmakers to look at budget, health insurance

How can you reduce your demands if you have a chonic illness. That doesnt make any sense. I have a neurologic disabilty from a birth defect, how do I reduce my demands? I also have insurance through my employer, the state of Missouri. Which costs me more every year and I receive less benefits. Top that off with no raises in years and we have actually taken a reduction in pay. How do I afford to shop around? If I made $2000 less a year I would qualify for state aid. Thats below the poverty line.
