House health bill eliminates tax penalty for gay couples

Currently when a company offers healthcare benefits to an employee's domestic partner, the full cost of the premiums paid are taxed as income to the employee. Married couples get these benefits tax-free.

The House healthcare reform bill passed yesterday eliminates this inequity. Let's hope the provision survives into the final legislation!
