Cambridge, MA: Named in honor of England, sustained in honor of all

by Jeremy Hooper

22 city workers in Cambridge, MA, pay higher taxes because they are gay and have their legal spouses on their health insurance. In a landmark move, the city is actually going to start offering a make-good stipend to these workers, as a way of cutting the extra federal tax burden imposed by the so-called Defense of Marriage Act:

Because what's the far-right gonna do, accuse Cambridge of being too liberal? That would be like accusing Lady Gaga of enjoying lively garments.

According to estimates, this will cost the city around $33k. A bargain when you consider principled goodwill's priceless stature.
