    What is wrong with the anti-gay, religious crowd? Keep your lousy attitudes, and laws, away from the gays. You all deserve wicked scrutiny for what you’ve done. Get a life, bigots!

    I wish folks would quit using the argument that providing benefits to same sex couples is too expensive. Why does it matter how much it will cost? If heterosexual couples have those benefits available so should same sex couples. It the state can’t afford it, then remove it from everyone.

    Leave it to Jan Brewer to want to take anyone who’s not a rich white right winger rights away. This woman just gets more and more pathetic each day.
