Boehner Has A Hard-On For DOMA
John Boehner is getting serious about those marriage wrecking same sex partners. He’s retained an attorney to defend DOMA in court, and he’s expecting the Department of Justice to foot the bill.
Boehner and his house Republican minions have retained the services of ex Bush Solicitor General Paul Clement to defend the constitutionality of DOMA. Because the DOJ has been instructed by the White House not to defend these suits, Boehner expects the House to be reimbursed by the DOJ for the cost of Clement, as well as any court costs incurred. So far, requests from house Democrats for disclosure of costs to tax payers have been ignored by Boehner.
This is yet another in a long series of dick moves by Boehner. This has nothing to do with the economy, jobs, or the deficit. It’s nothing more than another attempt by the Republicans to shove their moral agendas down our throats.
I guess Boehner’s idea of fixing the economy is to keep America in a patriarchal, biased, heterosexual society. Women, minorities, and queers are not invited.
