Default Fiscally responsible?

In 2011 the Justice Dept. determined that the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional. This was determined to be a correct assessment by most legal scholars as the Constitution guarantees equal rights.

The Republicans then authorized $3 Million to defend the DOMA!

"On Tuesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer sent a letter to Speaker John Boehner protesting the spending, which the G.O.P. leadership somehow forgot to mention at any of the dozens of press conferences they’ve held to preach the gospel of fiscal responsibility.

“This clandestine commitment of taxpayer funds is highly irregular and objectionable, and it must end now,” they wrote, pointing out that defending DOMA is futile since it violates Constitutional guarantees of equal protection."
