Paul Ryan: Gay Adoption Bill Would Get My Vote

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Congressman Paul Ryan led a town hall meeting in Janesville, Wisconsin last night, answering a number of questions about the economy, the sequester and other budgetary issues.

But while the former Vice Presidential candidate expectantly blamed President Obama and the Democratic-controlled Senate for most of the country's economic woes, he surprised many with his response to a question about gay adoption.

"I do believe that if there are children who are orphans who do not have a loving person or couple, I think if a person wants to love and raise a child they ought to be able to do that. Period. I would vote that way," Ryan said.

In 1999, the Congressman voted to ban same-sex couples in the D.C. from adopting children.

But Ryan says he changed this stance years ago, only speaking publicly about it for the first time at last night's hotel conference room gathering.

As for gay marriage? Ryan answered that inquiry simply and straightforwardly:

"I do believe marriage is between a man and a woman."

Ryan is the House Budget Committee chairman and is in his home district as part of a week-long congressional recess.
