Vermont Congressman Peter Welch: Repealing DOMA is a Matter of Fairness

U.S. Representative Peter Welch is one of 90 House Democrats supporting a repeal of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act. Welch says the issue comes down to state's rights. Before DOMA was passed, marriage was left up to individual states to decide. With the introduction of the act, the federal government interfered with that historic right. "Repealing DOMA will put us back on the track that we were on for hundreds of years," he said. [Link]
