Jeb Bush Supports Leaving Gay Marriage to the States

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.
