NH Speaker Bill O’Brien: I Want To Repeal Gay Marriage Because It Costs Too Much

If our families are weak, then we’ll never be able to have final fiscal responsibility, because if government needs to step up for weakened families then there’s going to be an unlimited call on government resources. One of the things that makes our families strong is a traditional definition of marriage and I firmly believe that.”

—Bill O’Brien, Republican Speaker of the House in New Hampshire, revealing that he’d work to overturn marriage equality in his state if reelected because it result in greater government spending, on NPR’s The Exchange.
