I never said it did. I only discussed Power of Attorney - and its implications. |
I never proposed, let alone argued, bad law would fix bad law. Where did you even get that from?
The problem is that your solution - Power of Attorney - doesn't work out like you think it does in some states. It isn't the first time you have posted that as your solution to the problem as if it was some kind of no-brainer. It isn't. People have looked into it. The very kinds of laws (like the ones in Ohio) make your proposed solution unworkable.
What has made it worse has been all of the "conscience" crap that Republican legislatures have implemented in the states where they've run the legislatures over the past few years. So long as the Republicans continue on that path it won't matter if the next legislature changes Power of Attorney into something that is a proper solution because the next time they get control back they will shove all the crap back in making Power of Attorney unworkable again for persons who for whatever reason (in this case, sexual orientation) offends the religious "conscience" of, well, anyone.
I urge people who have existing Powers of Attorney set up to check with an attorney to determine if their state has made changes recently with the Uniform Power of Attorney Act or will do so in the near future as that may require changes to make sure that their instructions will be carried out and that any changes in the law don't provide broader powers by default than you intended for your designated person to have.
