Presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren came out in favor of legislation that has been equated to “gay reparations.” Warren is blazing a trail for the far-leftists to ensure gay couples get what is owed to them from what she’s calling “past abuses.” Well, immediately she was made to really regret it. You’ll love this.
Liz Warren is playing the hardball edition of identity politics, and there’s not a minority class of people she won’t exploit. The Massachusett’s Senator is hoping to get every gay vote out there with “gay reparations.”
Under the Refund Equality Act, same-sex couples would be able to amend their past taxes, readjusting with jointly-filed tax returns and accepting bigger refunds from the IRS.
“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 said in a statement, according to NBC News. “We need to call out that discrimination and to make it right — Congress should pass the Refund Equality Act immediately.”
“It wasn’t until marriage equality became law that gay & lesbian couples could jointly file tax returns—so they paid more in taxes,” the Democratic presidential candidate posted to Twitter on Sunday. “Our government owes them more than $50M for the years our discriminatory tax code left them out. We must right these wrongs.”

Warren proposed similar legislation in July 2017, according to Mic, with a bill that would “refund married same-sex couples an estimated $67 million that they unfairly paid prior to the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) being overturned,” the outlet noted. “Though co-sponsored by 36 members of Congress, the act was stalled, and therefore had to be reintroduced this year.”
In February, Warren came out in favor of reparations for black Americans “economically affected” by slavery, Reuters reported. That same month, she co-sponsored Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s patently insane Green New Deal resolution, which would cost up to $93 trillion over 10-years, according to the American Action Forum, Bloomberg News reported.
And in June, the Warren campaign released a climate change plan: “a $2 trillion package that commits the federal government to spend $150 billion a year over the next decade on low-carbon technology, increases energy research funding tenfold and funds a $100 billion Green Marshall Plan to aid the poorer countries projected to suffer the worst as global temperatures rise,” reported HuffPost.
And there’s more. Earlier this month, the far-left Democrat outlined her plan to “cancel” student loan debt for some 42 million Americans.
“The ambitious student loan forgiveness plan would cancel student loan debt for more than 95% of borrowers, and would entirely cancel student loan debt for more than 75% of Americans with student loan debt,” Forbes reported.
Plus, as reported by CNBC, Warren wants to “eliminate tuition and fees at all two-year and four-year public universities through a federal partnership with states to ‘split the costs of tuition and fees and ensure that states maintain their current levels of funding on need-based financial aid and academic instruction.’”
Ole Liz is really doling out as much money as she can. That would make you and I the givers by virtue of paying our taxes.
It’s too bad if you aren’t a minority, gay, or have student debt. Now, we will all have the privilege to pay for every kid to go to college. And the gay reparations thing. It all sounds so terrific, right?
Wrong. Americans were livid at Warren’s ridiculous plans.
“I call this vote-poaching pandering. These people are dead crazy and anybody who listens to a thing they say is plain STUPID. I AM NOT SURPRISED AS TO WHO THEY INTEND TO ENTICE WITH THIS TOMFOOLERY,” tweeted Antoine A.E. Shapiro.

“Every time we think they can’t go any more off the deep end than they already have with their insanity, they take it a step farther,” tweeted Kyra Gebhardt.

No one can take anything these Democrats are saying seriously.
We have the 23 presidential hopefuls all trying to outdo each other by playing the “free stuff” game. What we should take seriously is what would happen if the Democrats ever got control of the White House and Congress?
We would see the Republic’s last days. They will destroy this country by turning it into their version of a socialist dream, and those socialist dreams always end in death and destruction. Ask the Venezuelans how that socialism is working for them now.
Grown-up adults don’t vote Democrat. This isn’t the party of John F. Kennedy or Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Those days are long gone.
This the new Democratic Party based on Chairman Mao and Karl Marx. America is the most charitable nation, but forced charity by income redistribution is theft, and that’s the plan Liz Warren is offering. Americans just aren’t buying what she is selling, this time around. Let’s make sure younger generations get educated to the truth before it’s too late.
