Obama signs mandate allowing LGBT spouses to visit partners in hospitals

Obama ordered the assassination of American citizens. That is unforgiveable.

But in the last week, he also made the most decisive action towards reducing America and Russia’s nuclear stockpiles (a very Reaganesque move), and also, did this:

President Obama on Thursday signed a memorandum requiring hospitals to allow gays and lesbians to have non-family visitors and to grant their partners medical power of attorney. The president ordered the Department of Health and Human Services to prohibit discrimination in hospital visitation. The memo is scheduled to be made public Friday morning, according to an administration official and another source familiar with the White House decision.

An official said the new rule will affect any hospital that receives Medicare or Medicaid funding.

This could potentially right so many wrongs.
