Democratic Presidential nominees appear to be in a race to the bottom, or lowest common identity-politics denominator as their virtue-signaling knows no bounds.After a week of discussions about reparations for slavery – soundly dismissed by numerous African American speakers
– Senator Elizabeth Warren has tried to outdo her opponents by seeking reparations for another group
of repressed and long-suffering individuals.
Warren reintroduced the Refund Equality Act, a bill that would allow same-sex couples to amend past tax returns and receive 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.As NBC News reports,
“We need to call out that discrimination and to make it right – Congress should pass the Refund Equality Act immediately.”
a report by the Joint Committee on Taxation released Tuesday
estimated that taxpayers who were in same-sex marriages prior to the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act in 2013 would be eligible for up to $57 million in refunds. Warren introduced a version of the bill in 2017
I’m glad to introduce the Refund Equality Act in the Senate. Our bill ensures legally-married, same-sex couples can claim the tax refunds they earned, but were denied before marriage equality was the law of the land. https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/warren-introduces-bill-unlock-millions-tax-refunds-denied-gay-couples-n1019531 …

Warren introduces bill to unlock millions in tax refunds denied to gay couples
For years the IRS banned same-sex married couples from filing joint tax returns and saving money on their taxes. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is trying to correct that.
2,620 people are talking about thisAs we concluded in March,
after noting the spread of ‘reparations’ is now a worldwide phenomona, guilt is not a constructive emotion on a personal level
– it prevents us from letting go of the past and moving on with life.
Could this be true on a societal level, too? The phenomena of virtue-signaling
– fooling ourselves and others into thinking we are making a positive difference with ostentatious displays of do-gooding
– is a common way of temporarily allaying this social guilt without requiring the sacrifice or work of genuinely creating change in the world. Thus, we remain stuck in a downward-spiral of self-loathing, while simultaneously failing to correct the ongoing injustices we see around us.
