Senators Warner & Kaine: “Ensure Equality by Giving Special Treatment”

To ensure the Social Security Administration is “treating all legal marriages equally,” Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) and Sentor Tim Kaine (D-VA) have signed on to a letter demanding the SSA “issue a blanket waiver for recovery of overpayment” for homosexual couples married after the Supreme Court’s decision earlier this year. The letter does not explain how demanding SSA give preferential treatment to homosexual couples advances equality for “all legal marriages.”

According to the letter, “SSA continued to issue benefits to Supplemental Security Income recipients in same-sex marraiges as though these individuals were single, and for that some SSI recipients, SSA is still doing so. Because the benefits for unmarried individuals are higher than those for married individuals, SSA’s failure to update its policies has resulted in overpayments.” Ah, the benefits of marriage.

To its credit, the SSA has—according to the letter—”sent overpayment notices to these individuals” who were overpaid. Good for them. That’s equality. If a married, heterosexual couple were overcompensated by SSA, I would expect them to receive a similar notice. Senators Warner and Kaine, and the 118 other Senators and Representatives who signed the letter, disagree. They oppose equality before the law, and demand a categorical, automatic waiver for homosexual couples who have received overpayments.

If Senators Warner and Kaine truly care about about equality, they should stop demanding special treatment for certain groups.

‘SVU’ Hits All Its Usual Marks with Robert Durst Episode

Ever eager to tick all the politically correct boxes, NBC’s veteran procedural “Law & Order: SVU” kicked off its 17th season by fulfilling a laundry list of left-wing fantasies. In an episode that nicely combines the show’s signature “ripped from the headlines” storylines with attacks on rich white male one percenters, “SVU” outed Manhattan’s Deputy Chief Medical Examiner (M.E.) Dr. Carl Rudnick (Jefferson Mays) as a cross-dressing, mentally ill, independently wealthy serial killer (sound familiar?) who used his position to cover his tracks as he dismembered women alive for pleasure.

Not many medical examiners could post a $2,000,000 bail on a moment’s notice. But Rudnick is no ordinary civil employee. Backed by layers of trust funds and a vaguely massive family fortune, Rudnick walks free within hours to murder the only witness who could take him down before skipping town on a bus to Canada. Rudnick is intercepted in Rochester in all his gender-bending glory after getting flagged for shoplifting despite carrying a money belt with $64,000 in cash. Given his amateur slip-ups, it’s amazing it took the SVU more than a decade to catch him.
