Just recently, House Speaker John Boehner tripled the amount of taxpayer money that can be spent to defend the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act in court – from $500,000 to $1.5 million. House Republicans are showing that they will spend any amount of money to keep this unfair law on the books -- and it's money that comes directly from taxpayers' pockets.
With the economic woes in Washington right now, House Republicans should focus on balancing the budget – not increasing spending to defend a law that flies in the face of our constitutional principles.
Tell Speaker Boehner today: DOMA denies rights to legally married, same-sex couples and you can't use our money to defend it.
