NEW YORK —  “Today, through something as seemingly banal as a tax code change, the Obama Administration made marriage equality a national right and further advanced America’s march of freedom, which was celebrated on the national mall yesterday. No longer will the validity of one’s marriage be, in the eyes of the federal government, dependent upon the gender of a partner.

“New York was one of the first states to pass marriage equality and now any couple who gets married in our city will have their marriage recognized by the federal government, regardless of where they live. New York City has long been the place for a wedding, and now there is one more reason for people from across the country to come here and get hitched.”
