Washington, DC – Earlier today, President Obama announced that he supports same-sex marriage.  Congresswoman Betty McCollum (MN-04) issued the following statement in support of the President’s change on the issue.

“All Americans deserve the freedom to marry who they love and today is a watershed moment in the struggle for marriage equality.  I applaud President Obama’s courage in declaring that all committed couples, all American families deserve to be treated equally under the law.   The President’s words are in stunning contrast to the GOP politicians and extremists who seek to enshrine discrimination and intolerance into our constitution.”

Congresswoman Betty McCollum serves on the House Appropriations and Budget Committees.
