David Bass writes at the American Spectator:
So, New York has a $10 billion budget deficit, and what's preoccupying Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state legislature? Redefining civil marriage to include same-sex couples.
That betrays an inglorious double standard in liberalism and the media. When Republican-controlled legislatures enact pro-life or pro-family laws during the Great Recession, they've veered off course from a focus on fiscal priorities. If liberals do it, they get a pass.
