(Washington, D.C.) — Wisconsin’s Republican U.S. Senator is defending his ‘No’ vote on the Senate’s same sex marriage plan. Senator Ron Johnson voted ‘No’ yesterday on the Respect for Marriage Act. He says there is no need to vote on the idea of same sex marriage, he says the Supreme Court already settled the issue. Johnson says Democrats have used the idea that same sex marriage is in trouble ‘to create a state of fear’ over what he calls a settled issue, in order to ‘further divide Americans for their political benefit.’ Wisconsin’s Democratic U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin, who voted for the plan, yesterday said the Senate took a step ‘to give millions of loving couples the certainty, dignity, and respect.’
