Senator Ted Cruz Reintroduces State Marriage Defense Act

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has reintroduced the State Marriage Defense Act in the U.S. Senate.

“Even though the Supreme Court made clear in United States v. Windsor that the federal government should defer to state ‘choices about who may be married,’ the Obama Administration has disregarded state marriage laws enacted by democratically-elected legislatures to uphold traditional marriage,” Cruz said in a press release.

He added, “I support traditional marriage and we should reject attempts by the Obama Administration to force same-sex marriage on all 50 states. The State Marriage Defense Act helps safeguard the ability of states to preserve traditional marriage for their citizens.”

While you’re at it Senator, why don’t you reintroduce federalism and the U.S. Constitution?  The Obama administration and the federal judiciary have disregarded that as well.
