Elizabeth Warren has voiced her support for a national law guaranteeing the right to same-sex marriage for all Americans. Warren was interviewed by Salonat Netroots Nation this past week. There, she stated that “Yes, I believe in marriage equality. Done. Game. Set. Match.” She went futher and called on Obama to push for a national law guaranteeing the right to same-sex marriage for all Americans.
It should be noted that such a law would run into the same problem as the Defense of Marriage Act. Both would run afoul of the fact that the states have always ruled over the issue of marriage; however, once DOMA is removed from the law books, it would then be possible for people to get married in one state and have it recognized across the nation, effectively putting the kibosh on the state’s DOMAs.
Warren also stated that “And I believe DOMA is despicable. I’m serious about that.”
