Boehner and House Vote to Spend Millions of Taxpayer Dollars Defending DOMA


In a 3-2 vote last week that fell along party lines, a House panel decided to defend DOMA in court. The House will take over this responsibility after the White House and Department of Justice determined the law to be unconstitutional and therefore indefensible in court.

Boehner claims it is President Obama’s responsibility to defend the discriminatory law and that he is merely stepping up to do what the president will not. Nancy Pelosi, who voted against the measure to defend DOMA, point out that the House defense of the law will cost millions in taxpayer dollars.
