(Washington, DC) – In an interview with the Washington Post, President Bush stated that, "Senators have made it clear that so long as DOMA is deemed constitutional, nothing will happen. I'd take their admonition seriously... Until that changes, nothing will happen in the Senate." The anti-family Federal Marriage Amendment failed to garner even a majority of votes in the Senate in 2004.

"Log Cabin is hopeful that the President's comments recognizing the lack of support for the anti-family Federal Marriage Amendment will result in a second term agenda that can concentrate on much needed reform: reform of social security, reform of the tax system, reform of immigration, and reform of our approach to combating HIV/AIDS," said Log Cabin Republicans President Patrick Guerriero.

"After a divisive debate in 2004 over the anti-family amendment, Log Cabin looks forward to working with the President and the GOP leadership in the House and Senate on critical issues such as social security reform," concluded Log Cabin Political Director Chris Barron.
