John Boehner, Speaker of the House: Stop spending our tax dollars on defending Federal DOMA

John Boehner pretends to stand for being fiscally responsible. However, how is allocating an additional 3 MILLION DOLLARS of our tax payer money on defending a totally unconstitutional and clearly discriminatory law. The GOP has already thrown out one million dollars on defending DOMA, but that was not enough. They are only defending it because Obama has refused to continue to defend DOMA.

      John Boehner does not represent the people. He is trapped by the voices of the lobbyists. He must be replaced ASAP.

      I would love to be able to LEGALLY marry the woman I love. There's nothing in this world that would make me happier. But Sen. John Boehner and the rest of the ultra Republicans want to use 3 MILLION DOLLARS of tax payer money to defend DOMA. I don't pay taxes just to have my civil rights not only denied, like they are now, but to, for the FIRST TIME IN AMERICAN HISTORY, add an amendment to the constitution that intentionally discriminates against American citizens. It is CRUCIAL that everyone sign this petition. When I signed we were only at 23 supporters but we need 5000 total!

      Imagine that. Using my own money to discriminate against me and violate my Constitutional rights. Outrageous.

      It is important that John Boehner get a clear message that a majority of Americans want their gay brothers and sisters to be treated and given the same civil rights as he and every heterosexual couple in America enjoys. We also need to create an awareness of how completely hypocritical he is and that he needs to STOP wasting our tax dollars on maintaining discrimination in our laws.
