You Say Goodbye, I Say Hello

The "Hello, Goodbye" song by the Beatles could be fitting in light of the
SCREWTUS decision on same sex unions. The New York Times finds that some companies with domestic partner health insurance coverage may say goodbye to those benefits now that there are no barriers to marriage.

Some large employers — including Verizon, Delta Air Lines, IBM and Corning — already have. They rescinded domestic partner benefits to employees living in states where same-sex marriage was legalized and replaced it with spousal coverage. Last July, Verizon gave its employees until the end of the year to decide whether to marry. IBM gives employees a one-year grace period, though a spokeswoman said the time frame was under review; Delta said it provided a grace period as well, about two years. And some states have sought rollbacks as well. - NYT

Elections, and Supreme Court decisions, have consequences.

Be careful what you wish for.
