A federal appeals court has just ruled that the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. This marks a big victory in our fight to end a law that treats same-sex couples as second-class citizens.
Unfortunately, the anti-gay, Republican House leadership has shown no signs of dropping their case to defend this law – the law that President Obama bravely refused to continue fighting for last year.
Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor have already committed to spending up to $1.5 million in taxpayer funds on these cases. They need to hear from you now before they waste even one more cent appealing this discriminatory law – possibly to the Supreme Court.
Tell Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor: The writing is on the wall for DOMA. Stop wasting taxpayer money defending discrimination.
I don't want my tax dollars wasted defending discrimination. Instead, Congress should focus its energy on repealing this harmful and discriminatory law.
I urge you to drop your case, and instead of fighting for a law that treats same-sex couples like second-class citizens, show true leadership by supporting equality for all.
