There are many things absent from the ‘narrative’ around the social experiment called ‘gay marriage.’
One of the greatest missing pieces is COST.
Ironically, this is at a time, the Democrats refuse to write a budget, much less balance it. And the ignorant Republicans help them, but that is a different story.
The cost is enormous.
There seem to be about 140,000 gay households with children. Rounding a little bit, with the expectation there are about 1.8 children per gay household. I am lowering the estimate a little bit from this article at ABC News.
There seem to be about 250,000 children living in gay households. And the tax cost savings is about $2,000 per child. 250,000 times $2,000 is a 500 million dollar a year cost just at the Federal level.
I would guess the insurance costs would be about the same. So overall, this experiment will cost over a billion dollars a year in hard money.
What will ‘we the people’ get in return for our ‘investment?’ Don’t you love how they have changed stealing money from you for their pet projects has become an ‘investment?’ That is definitely a different blog though.
Will we get a return on our investment (tax money spent)?
I really don’t think so. Whenever they can twist the math to ‘show’ a return, they brag about it. And they have been very quiet. So, I think the rest of us will lose another billion dollars a year.
