”A Waste Of Taxpayer Resources”
Minority Leader and former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi today responded to a federal court’s finding today that DOMA, the federal Defense of Marriage Act, is unconstitutional, by telling Speaker John Boehner to stop defending the 1996 law banning federal recognition of same-sex marriages. After President Obama and Attorney General Holder announced they would stop defending DOMA in court, as it had already been declared unconstitutional, Boehner decided to allocate at least $500 million to “defend” the unconstitutional law, being to social conservatives and ignoring logic.
