The White House - Press Office - Fact Sheet Presidential Memorandum on Federal Benefits and Non Discrimination

Posted using
"The Memorandum follows a review by the Director of the Office of Personnel Management and the Secretary of State regarding what benefits may be extended to the same-sex partners of federal employees in the civil service and the foreign service within the confines of existing federal laws and statutes."
The memo is full of language that just irks me. And I go back and forth between whether or not what President Obama did today was good, bad, or neutral. I'm hoping he's just a sly fellow and that by taking action one step and at a time, he's slowly revealing the intricate flaws and consequences in existing laws.
