Thinks states are better at handling social issues than the federal government

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) thinks the issue of same-sex marriage should be handled at the state level, he told Newsmax in an interview published Monday.

"I would prefer it to be a state-by-state issue," Bush said. "That's how we have dealt with a lot of issues in the United States."

Bush went on to argue that states were better equipped than the federal government to handle shifting dynamics on social issues.
