Hey Tea Party! John Boehner TRIPLES DOMA Legal Budget! What Ya Gonna Do About That?

The country’s broke and in debt, or so the GOP and Tea Party says but that hasn’t stopped John Boehner and the ReTHUGlican party from tripling the budget to defend the unconstitutional Defense Of Marriage Act.

 A modified contract between the General Counsel to the House of Representatives and former Solicitor General Paul Clement of Bancroft PLLC sets a cap of $750,000 which can be raised up to $1.5 million. “It is absolutely unconscionable that Speaker Boehner is tripling the cost for his legal boondoggle to defend the indefensible Defense of Marriage Act,” Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, said in a statement. “At a time when Americans are hurting and job creation should be the top priority, it just shows how out of touch House Republicans have become that they would spend up to $1.5 million dollars to defend discrimination in our country,” Hammill continued.

Financial hysteria, draconian spending cuts, and supremely hypocritical  Republican Leadership to spend additional taxpayer dollars on the unwarranted, unconstitutional and unnecessary defense of DOMA.
