States are the best level of government at which to define marriage — the federal government should not be able to force a definition of marriage on all 50 states. This bill gives the choice back to states and the people who live in them.
There needs to be a federal definition of marriage because states can’t be trusted to enact non-discriminatory marriage laws. This bill is a less than subtle way to step on same-sex couples' rights to have their marriage recognized anywhere in the country.
