Hatch blasts ruling on prop 8
Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, blasted a federal district judge's decision to overturn Proposition 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage.
"Two years ago, Californians voted to uphold traditional marriage. Today, one federal judge trumped 7 million voters by making up a right that is not in the Constitution. This is what happens when judges make up the Constitution as they go along, when judges rather than the Constitution are the supreme law of the land." Hatch said about U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker's ruling.
"A judge who is a good student of the law makes all the difference and determines whether the people, and not unelected judges, will be allowed to decide these important cultural and political issues for themselves," Hatch concluded.
