"Schlafly: Perry’s Tax Plan ‘Rewards Bad Behavior’ Of Same-Sex Couples"

Phyllis Schlafly has lashed out at Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry for the way his 20 percent flat-tax plan eliminates tax advantages for married couples. She argued that giving deductions to unmarried parents with “alternative lifestyles” means “rewarding bad behavior.” Schlafly also condemned Perry for being “fine” with marriage equality in other states: “New York’s same-sex marriage is, indeed, Texas’s business, too, since two same-sex couples have already moved to Texas and are demanding that Texas courts recognize their marriage. This shows why the definition of marriage is a national and not a states-right issue.” (HT: American Independent.)
