    GOP Authorized Half A Million Dollars In Secret to Defend DOMA, While Publicly Opposi

    GOP Authorized Half A Million Dollars In Secret to Defend DOMA, While Publicly Opposing Spending

    "The updated contract now authorizes Bancroft LLC and Republican Paul Clement, former solicitor general, to spend up to $2 million in defense of DOMA, double the original agreement."

    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.

    It is amazing republicans don't have anything to say about this. They seem to enjoy spending money on hate.

    The things that Republicans deemed important in this election was their downfall. And if they continue to push this agenda, we will not see a Republican in the White House in the near future.

    You are correct, Obama should have vetoed this legislation to prevent this from happening.

    Apparently, it's just a poorly written section in the article. There was no bill passed. It was an addendum to an existing contract. That explains how it was done "in secret".

    Well, there's always Jeb Bush. I believe I read there hasn't been a republican in the whitehouse without a Bush or a Nixon on the ticket since 1928. Personally, the way the Republicans are going, and the contemptuous rejection they are incurring upon themselves in these modern times, I'm not too worried about a Republican in the whitehouse anytime soon. But you never know. The collective memory of America is fleeting.

    well not in the next 4 years and 1 months, but after that, don't be surprised. Talk all the we won smack you want, but political tides changes, especially on Pennsylvania Avenue.

    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.

    With all the money cities, county's, state's and the Federal Government spend on defending unpopular law suits and even "popular" one's you have some nerve complaining about them spending money to defend a law of the people. You going to tell me Illinois didn't spend millions on attorney's to fight for their "unpopular" ban on concealed weapons that was defeated? 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.
