When Will DOMA Be Repealed?

President Obama has told The Advocate that he believes that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) should be repealed. DOMA keeps Social Security from recognizing same sex marriages. Social Security would be far more affected than any other agency if DOMA is repealed.

Even a year ago I would have thought that repeal of DOMA was out of the question. Now, it seems like it is only a matter of time, even with Republicans in control of one house of Congress. This has to be one of the most amazing changes in public opinion in my lifetime.
