Attorney General Eric Holder just told Speaker of the House John Boehner that the Department of Justice would no longer defend the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in court cases, maintaining that the 1996 legislation is unconstitutional.
Now it is up to Speaker Boehner, and members of the House, to decide whether to spend taxpayer resources to defend DOMA or focus on the real issues plaguing our country such as foreclosures, health care, unemployment, and the economy.
Speaker Boehner has to make a decision by March 11 as to whether he will turn his attention away from creating jobs and toward upholding an unconstitutional and discriminatory law.
We think the choice is simple -- tell Speaker Boehner to focus on job creation, not discrimination!
