House GOP Secretly Increased Spending On Defense Of Anti Gay Defense Of Marriage Act


House Speaker Boehner: Financing Defense Of Hate
Hey lob cabin republicans, aren't you glad your voted for these guys?  They're really looking out for you!! 
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) denounced the increased expense in a statement:
It’s bad enough that Speaker Boehner and House Republicans are wasting taxpayer dollars to defend the indefensible Defense of Marriage Act – and losing in every case. Now, they have reached a new low – signing a secret contract to spend more public money on their legal boondoggle without informing Democrats. Their actions are simply unconscionable; their decisions are utterly irresponsible.
Hiding this contract from voters in the midst of an election season was a cynical move at best, and a betrayal of the public trust at worst. With Americans focused on the creation of jobs and the growth of our economy, Republicans should not be spending $2 million to defend discrimination in our country.
