Republican presidential candidates out of step

Last week was an amazing week for Americans all across the nation. The Supreme Court made two historic decisions – the Affordable Care Act is here to stay and love is love for all Americans. Real progress has been made and Democrats will continue to fight for commonsense policies that benefit Americans from all backgrounds.

But Republicans aren’t agreeing and want to continue the fight. Take a look at some of the things they’ve had to say since the Court’s decisions:

On marriage equality:

Bush: “I believe in traditional marriage.”

Walker: “The only alternative left is to support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to reaffirm the ability of the states to continue to define marriage.”

Rubio: “I believe that marriage…should be between one man and one woman.”

Perry: “I’m a firm believer in traditional marriage… I fundamentally disagree with the court rewriting the law and assaulting the 10th Amendment.”

Jindal: “Marriage between a man and a woman was established by God, and no earthly court can alter that.”

Fiorina: “I do not agree that the Court can or should redefine marriage.”

Huckabee: “The only outcome worse than this flawed, failed decision would be for the President and Congress…to surrender in the face of this out-of-control act of unconstitutional, judicial tyranny.”

On the Affordable Care Act:

Bush: “I will work with Congress to repeal…”

Paul: “As President, I will fight for full-fledged, 100 percent REPEAL.”

Rubio: “I remain committed to repealing this bad law…

Walker: “Today’s Supreme Court ruling upholding the administration’s implementation of ObamaCare means Republicans in the House and Senate must redouble their efforts to repeal…”

Perry: “It’s time we repealed Obamacare…”

Cruz: “Every GOP candidate for the Republican nomination should know that this decision makes the 2016 election a referendum on the full repeal of Obamacare.”

Graham: “Today’s decision only reinforces why we need a president who will bring about real reform that repeals Obamacare…”
