On Tuesday, with a vote of 267-157, the House of Representatives passed the Respect for Marriage Act, the act that, among other things, guard marriage rights of same-sex couples. Now it’s headed to the Senate, and while the Majority Leader Chuck Schumer To be reported is working to win the necessary votes for it to become law, passage of the bill is by no means guaranteed. We know this because a number of Republicans were asked for their thoughts on the matter, and while they didn’t just come out and say, “I’m not voting for this because I can’t care less about it.” care more about LGBTQ+ people” or simply “I don’t vote for it because I’m a bigot”… they might as well.
Get a Senator Marco Rubio, for a. Polled on his stance on the law on Wednesday, the Florida senator told Insider he would not vote on a bill that would protect same-sex marriage at the federal level. because “There is no threat to its standing in the US.” That is, you guessed it, obviously wrong! In fact, the main reason people want to pass the Respect for Marriage Act is for Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas literally threatened last month to overturn a landmark ruling protecting same-sex marriage (as well as the right to contraception and same-sex sexual activity). However, despite the fact that Thomas and his fellow Christofascists on the Court made it clear that they willing to take away the rights out of millions, Rubio believes that anyone who is concerned about their right to marry the person of their choice is a hysteria.
Then there’s the Senator Ben Sasse, who also wants to pretend that a recently sitting justice does not target same-sex marriage, or that his colleagues have not appeared in public say things like The Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage is “clearly wrong.” He also believes that none of this is anything to worry about, and that Nancy Pelosi just started.
In other places, Mitt Romney yes speak the invoice is “unnecessary”; Lindsey Graham yes speak we can count him down for a “no”; Roger Wicker To be a “probably not”; and Chuck Grassley trust same-sex marriage rights are “law of the earth” and do not want to delve into the fact that Roe v. Wade less than a month ago. Based on HuffPost’s Igor Bobic, “As of today, only 4 Republicans have expressed support/openness for systematizing same-sex marriage protections: [Susan] Collins, [Rob] Portman, [Lisa] Murkowski, [and Thom] Tillis.” Joni Ernst clearly “keeps an open mind” and wants people to know that she has “a large number of very close friends who are married of the same sex”. Thanks to the movie, Democrats need 10 Republicans to overcome the dark side for the bill to pass.
