This is a state issue, not a Federal issue.

In the case of DC, Congress has delegated its regulatory powers to the DC government, which can "act like a state" in some ways, including regulating marriage as it sees fit.

Thank you Supreme Court for a good decision. Republicans should be proud, because the court ruled for "less government interference" in our personal lives, right? Oh, wait....
