    Can the courts rule on the legality of this measure(s)?

    Will this have any better chance of passing in the Senate and House?
    Will there be a statute of limitations on these measures, because assuming Democrats ever return to power, then they can do all kinds of fun stuff that the conservatives will hate...

    I'd like to think that the sheer audacity of the GOP these days is going to seriously come back and get them, in the courts (ironic) or in the voting booths...prompting a much needed re-assessment of the Republican Agenda...because even Republicans are getting pissed off these days (moderates, that is...)

    The far right of the GOP is trying to build a consensus within their ranks that Marbury v Madison and every law since is a distortion of the Constitution. The drumbeat of "arbitrary judges" and "judges legislating from the bench" is all about trying to lay the foundation to overturn settled law of the last 200 years. These are the true "radicals" of today.

    Here is the deal on married, filing single.

    If you are 1040EZ you can't do it.

    If you are 1040A you can, you pay a lower rate but can't take deductions.

    If someone who understands tax lingo better than I do goes to www.irs.gov and searches forms for 1040A it explains it better than I can remember it.

    Bottom line: people who are married still pay more taxes per person.
