Santorum Statement on Obama’s Reversal on DOMA

Washington, DC – Former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s announcement that his administration will no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court:

“When the definition of marriage has been put before the people, they have time and time again – from Maine to California – stood up in defense of the traditional family.  President Obama’s refusal to defend a law that was overwhelmingly supported on both sides of the aisle and signed into law by a president of his own party is an affront to the will of the people.  This is yet another example of our president’s effort to erode the very traditions that have made our country the greatest nation on earth, and it begs the question what language changed in the constitution since 2008 to reverse his position,” Santorum stated.
