Rep. Peter Welch made the following comments after the Supreme Court decisions striking down the so-called Defense of Marriage Act and effectively overturning California's ban on marriage equality:

"This is an historic day for our country. The highest court in the land has properly thrown on the trash heap of history a discriminatory law that denies rights to Americans based on who they love. With this uplifting decision, the Court is sending a clear message to our country: the days of denying rights to same-sex couples are numbered. As Vermonters affirmed years ago, all Americans are equal under the law regardless of sexual orientation. There is much more work to be done, but this is a positive step on the inevitable path to full equality. The Court should now finish the job and knock down state laws banning marriage equality."
