$1.5 Million To Defend DOMA

Written by 

The budget for the defense of DOMA was tripled.

The GOP-led House Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG) agreed to pay Washington, D.C.-based firm Bancroft PLLC up to $1.5 million for ongoing Defense of Marriage Act litigation. This new contract was approuved Friday.

The deputy Nancy Pelosi was shocked by the amount "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," she added.
