Rep. Walz statement on Supreme Court ruling

Posted:

WASHINGTON (WXOW) - Minnesota 1st District Congressman Tim Walz issued a statement Wednesday on the Supreme Court decision on the Defense of Marriage Act.

"Today is a historic day for equality. I've never believed that the government should be able to tell you who you can or cannot love and I applaud the Supreme Court's decision to overturn DOMA. Today, our LGBT brothers and sisters are recognized as equals; that their lives are not worth less than anyone else's. Today, the arc of the moral universe bent a little bit further towards justice, and I could not be more proud."
