Rhode Island Loses Millions with Second Best Civil Union Option
Gay residents of Rhode Island are leaving Rhode Island and getting married out of state. They are taking their marriages and the costs to fund them to other states. There is no financial advantage to ignoring the marriage rights of same-sex couples. The NOM spokesperson doesn't even try to marshal an argument here. He just asserts that allowing gay marriage won't fix the budget. I doubt anyone thought it would fix the budget but it would help.
