Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) left no question Wednesday about where he stands on legislation to codify same-sex marriage, telling reporters the measure is a “stupid waste of time.” “That bill’s not important.

It’s a waste of our time on a non issue,” Rubio said, according to Business Insider’s Bryan Metzger. “But I know plenty of gay people in Florida that are pissed off about gas prices.” Rubio’s remarks are consistent with his comment in previous years in opposition to same-sex marriage.

As a presidential candidate in 2015, Rubio said the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2015 ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges is “not settled law” and compared the decision to Roe v.

Wade, which justices recently overturned in the Dobbs decision. The Florida Republican was asked his views on the Respect for Marriage Act, which the House approved Tuesday on a bipartisan basis in an effort to protect same-sex marriage after the ruling in the Dobbs case, as reporters on Capitol Hill sought to determine whether sufficient GOP support exists in the Senate to end a filibuster.
