House Republicans Abandon Defense Of DOMA

1

Via: Think Progress

House Republicans have been using taxpayer funding to foot the $2.3 million dollar bill to defend the Defense of Marriage Act in a number of cases. While the Supreme Court was weighing Windsor the other cases challenging DOMA were put on hold.

Now that the Court has overturned DOMA, the House is abandoning its defense in the other cases.

personal thought:

I know $2.3 million is chump change, but for ‘Boehner, boner, whatever’ to spend millions on a lost cause in order to please the ‘Xristian Xrazies’ back home is simply APPALLING!

Hey, Mr. Speaker have another drink.

Family Research Council – ‘On Our Knees for America’

Via: Mock, Paper, Scissors

This is the new logo from famous hate-group Family Research Council that they will use to help rally their troops of mouth-breathers and god-botherers to fight the Supremes for overturning DOMA.

Now, aside from the little man who looks like he might be giving head, and then the rallying cry, “On our knees for America” followed by the tagline, “I’m In” sorta seals the deal for me.

Whoever their graphic designer is, I’m betting is laughing all the way to the alter with his/her same-sex partner.

(2 of 2) Nancy Pelosi – “Quote of the Day”

Via: Huffngton Post

It took Nancy Pelosi just two words on Wednesday to take Michele Bachmann down.

The House minority leader was asked during a press conference what she thought of Bachmann’s intense denunciation earlier in the day of the Supreme Court’s historic rulings in favor of gay marriage. She replied with a shrug:

“Who cares?”

In case you missed it, “WHO CARES?”

John Boehner: Justice Department Should Pay House GOP To Uphold Defense Of Marriage Act

Via: Huffington Post

WASHINGTON — House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Monday the Department of Justice should give the House money to defend the Defense of Marriage Act since the agency is not willing to defend the law itself.

“Obviously, DOJ’s decision results in DOJ no longer needing the funds it would have otherwise expended defending the constitutionality of DOMA,” wrote Boehner in a letterr sent to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). “It is my intent that those funds be diverted to the House for reimbursement of any costs incurred by and associated with the House, and not DOJ, defending DOMA.”

Boner and House Republicans have retained former Bush Solicitor General Paul Clement to defend the constitutionality of DOMA.
