A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "What are your views about domestic partners receiving health benefits from the State?"
"I think that there should be health benefits in general. I believe that there should be universal health care."
Angela Townsend, Seminary Student
"I believe that if we can be more inclusive in general as a society it's a good idea. And if people are committed to a relationship, no matter what sort of relationship, it is a good idea to be more inclusive. And if that includes health benefits, I don't see that the state should not support it. There are too many people without health benefits, anyway."
Billy Heller, Pine Street
"Yes I do, but only after they define exactly what is a domestic partnership, so that the status cannot be abused."
Susan Lidstone, Cherry Hill Road
"I support it. I do not see why domestic partners when it has been established that they have the same kind of committed relationship as a married couple should not get the same kind of benefits as a married couple."
Hilary Herbold, Moore Street
"I think it's a good idea. There is no reason not to do it."
Stephen Griffies, Maple Street
