Do Lawmakers See Us?

Do Lawmakers See Us?
by Regena English, editor

Lawmakers, believe it or not are highly overworked but unfortunately not due to looking out for single person issues.

Not one elected official in the history of the North American continent has ever focused on a single personsí platform, giving single persons serious considerations when passing laws. If you know of one please let me know and Iíll issue a correction.

The fact is, when many think of being single they see people who live carefreely with plenty of money. That image is far from being actual, single persons pay higher taxes, insurance, and yes even higher rent.

Gee, for a group thatís carefreely living there sure are alot of financial drains on their paychecks.

Taxes. How many times have you heard a politician promise to lower taxes for single people? Itís unheard of. You would think they could see how unfair taxation is, especially those who themselves are single and have to pay the same higher rates as their unmarried peers. If youíre not a married (or homosexual) couple and is not classified as middle-class your pocketbook will be left empty.

Insurance. Many cities and states have gone out of their way to give homosexual partnerships the same recognition as married couples so they too may enjoy lower rates. Rather than make policies and laws beneficial to all citizens they continue the discrimination against those without spouses. The only group of people itís politically correct to punish for being different.

Rent. Itís not just insurance (to include health, life, home, and auto) singles pay more, it can also be rent. Now Iíve been told apartment complexes sometimes charge single women more rent because of the belief unmarried women attract more crimes like rape and robbery. What??

Ladies if you think youíre paying higher rent due to your gender and marital status report the offending complex to the city and state real estate boards. Thatís against the law, and if by some odd coincidence your city or state is in the middle ages, push for a law to protect you and your peers.

Why is this happening to singles??Itís real simple, single people especially women are passive when it comes to their rights. Now is the time to stop taking what falls your way and let lawmakers know youíre a voter too. Demand inclusion in the lawmaking process. Stop suffering legal caning for not being apart of a couple in silence. Remember, the squeeky wheel gets the oil, isnít it time SINGLE PEOPLE SQUEEKED? Comments about this article can be emailed.
