There needs to be federal word about marriage. As it stands now, marriage is a relatively divisive subject, and that needs to be remedied. There are many people who are unable to get married, especially same sex couples or transgender couples, and they deserve the right to marry just like any straight couple.
President Barack Obama should suggest a federal marriage amendment as part of his overall agenda in the next three years. There are so many states that are allowing gay marriage that it would be so much better if Obama just amended the law. This way people in ALL states of ALL sexual orientations could get married.
I do not believe President Barack Obama should suggest a federal marriage amendment as part of his overall agenda in the next three years. His instructions to the Attorney General were sufficient and I believe each state will move on to change this laws as necessary. I do not think it is necessary for the president to do this.
The issue of the right to marry should be a state to state basis. The federal government cannot uniformly rule that all states follow a federal mandate to the right to marry. That would mean the federal government are overstepping their boundaries and not letting states decide how to handle this delicate issue.
No, President Barack Obama should not suggest a federal marriage amendment as part of his overall agenda in the next three years, because he cannot make our country completely what he wants it to be in four years. Obama has already taken over health care and raised inflation because he raised minimum wage. He has inflicted enough imposed socialism on us for one presidency.
