Here’s a transcript of the exchange:
CNN MANU RAJU: Democrats are talking about bringing up a bill to codify same-sex marriage. Would you vote for that?
SEN. THOM TILLIS: I’m looking at the bill and I probably will.
Democrats are pretending that same-sex marriage rights are under attack by the Supreme Court because Clarence Thomas said that decision was wrongly decided, just like Roe v Wade, and he’d like a chance to correct the error. But Alito made clear the decision to reverse Roe v Wade was only about abortion and would not extend to other cases like same-sex marriage.
Even Ted Cruz suggested in a recent podcast that while he agrees with Clarence Thomas, he doesn’t think this court has the stomach to do anything that would undo same-sex marriage in this country.
In other words this is just a phony ‘crisis’ because the left now thinks the court is a ‘threat to democracy’ or something. And it looks like McConnell squishes like Thom Tillis are going to fall for it.
UPDATE: I was out yesterday for much of the day and didn’t realize this just passed the House with the support of nearly 50 Republicans. Geez.
Nearly 50 House Republicans voted to write same-sex marriage into law Tuesday, joining all Democrats in a heavily bipartisan vote that would’ve been considered unthinkable a decade ago https://t.co/tfqTWZ4yJr
