HomePolitical NewsBuying Votes: Elizabeth Warren Wants to Pay Over $50 Million in Tax Reparations to Gays and Lesbians Mike Vance June 24, 2019 The left is always looking at different options that exist for buying votes. Democratic 2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren wants to pay over $50 million in tax reparations to gays and lesbians. Warren, who happens to be 1/1024th Native American, wants to pay the gays and lesbians back who were unable to get the benefit of the joint tax return. It wasn’t until marriage equality became law that gay & lesbian couples could jointly file tax returns—so they paid more in taxes. Our government owes them more than $50M for the years our discriminatory tax code left them out. We must right these wrongs. https://t.co/OZQcfVilSs — Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) June 23, 2019 At some point the left needs to realize that we can't re-write history. Tearing down statues doesn't mean things didn't happen. These tax reparations don't change the past. All they do is give a lot of money to gays and lesbians that probably don't deserve it. Who gets the money? How do they prove these people wanted to be married but weren't allowed? “The federal government forced legally married same-sex couples in Massachusetts to file as individuals and pay more in taxes for almost a decade,” Warren explained. “We need to call out that discrimination and to make it right — Congress should pass the Refund Equality Act immediately.” NBC News said these reparations could cost as much as $57 million or higher.
