Ehrlich denies his gays the right to pull the plug

by Jeremy Hooper

   Maryland Governor Robert Ehrilch announced today that he will be vetoing both the recently passed Medical Decision Making Act, which would have allowed unmarried couples to make healthcare and burial decisions for one another, and the Recordation Tax Exemption, that would have exempted domestic partners from a tax that is paid when one partner is added or removed to the deed of the other partner’s property on their shared home.

So Maryland gays, be super-duper careful on your way to pay your still applicable recordation tax, as if you should slip, fall, and become comatose, the choice of who shall determine your fate is still not yours to make.
