    As for the OP, Congress has the right to defend the laws it passed. It isn't like Eric Holder or the Obama Administration would do it.
    The next Republican candidate needs to be a moderate, not a conserative. Chris Christie would be their best bet IMO

    So the republicans are secretly spending money for DOMA. It looks like they passed a little secret bill that lets them spend 2 million on an unpopular law. The next time some republican paints themselves as a fiscal conservative remind them they blow a lot of money on keeping gay dudes from getting married on a federal level despite claiming it is a state issue. Thanks guys, and for that 2 million dollars you could have given 1666 people the maximum food stamps funds available to them. So yes, keeping gay dudes from marrying is more important to republicans that food for 1666 people. keeping gay dudes from marrying is more important than cutting spending by the government. keeping gay dudes from marrying is more important than keeping government out of your life. Oh, and keeping gay dudes from marrying is more important that the constitution, or the people of the US who feel that we should let them marry.
    So youre concerned about spending or gay dudes or transparency?

Michigan isn't going to have to spend millions to defend its "right to work" accomplishment this week; this is ridiculous you'd complain about this crap with all the money government must waste in court thanks to liberals.
    Liberals only consider it waste if it is not used for supporting and furthering Liberal Ideals, if it supports liberalism, it's not a waste but a desired expenditure.

    That is kind of like the pot calling the kettle black, isn't it. How much do Dems spend on hatred? How much have they spent on teaching people to hate the rich and profits? How much has it spent on caucuses and other organization that support elevating one race above another?

    I don't support homosexual marriage, but I also do not "hate" homosexuals. Pity them? Sure. I think we should have organizations dedicated to finding the cause of this affliction and curing it.

    See, you stating that homosexuality is an "affliction" and that it needs to be "cur[ed]" only shows your prejudice and homophobia.

    Christie is "barely" a Republican, and his sell out to help obama after Sandy will haunt him for ever. He's one and done; Booker will beat him anyway.

    He did the right thing for New Jersey after Sandy. That was not a sell out to get what is needed to help his state. That is common sense. Christie's approval rate in NJ is about 75%. What might hurt him is not taking the medicaid part of Obamacare. But I'm not sure that would alone kill his re-election. I think he shows that he can work with dems and that is what is needed to get things done.

    I would like to see Boehner talk to the press while showing a chart and discussing that side of spending and not turn red in the face.
