Same-sex partners to get US fed benefits

The Associated Press reported today that US President Barack Obama is extending benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees.

What about those who do not work for the federal government? What protection will they receive from the government? The Obama administration is short changing the gay and lesbian community still.

This is a step forward though compared to the Arroyo administration's turning a blind eye to the plight of gays and lesbians in the Philippines.
