Don’t defend DOMA – repeal it!

This week, the Obama Administration made history by ending its defense of DOMA in the federal courts.

But just as President Obama dealt a blow to this discriminatory law, Speaker Boehner and Republican leaders could step in and begin defending it.

Anti-LGBT lawmakers are being pressured by right-wing groups to use taxpayer resources to defend this discriminatory law in court. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX) and other members of Congress have already stepped in to defend DOMA in another federal court.

Republican leaders could decide within days, so we don’t have much time. Congress should be helping Americans in this struggling economy, not wasting our tax dollars to defend an unconstitutional law!

Tell Congress: Don’t defend DOMA. Repeal it!

Since President Obama’s announcement, every major right-wing group has demanded that Congress defend DOMA. They’re saying Obama’s decision will “force homosexual marriage on all 50 States” and is “subverting the constitution.”

But discrimination isn’t part of our constitution! Why can’t legally married same-sex couples file their taxes together, access each other’s Social Security survivors’ benefits, or sponsor one another for immigration? Because of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

This week, President Obama showed Americans how blatantly unconstitutional DOMA really is. To capitalize on this opportunity, we need to do more than just keep Republican leaders from defending DOMA – we need Congress to get rid of it once and for all.

Bills to repeal DOMA are about to be introduced in Congress, and they need more support.

Americans want all married couples to be treated equally under the law – and we will be outraged if our tax dollars are spent defending discrimination at a time when we should be focused on getting our economy back on track. Congress needs to hear from us now.

Tell Congress to ditch DOMA, not defend it!

We don’t have much time. The bills to repeal DOMA will be introduced soon and Republican leaders could decide to step in and defend the law any day now.

So please take a moment to spread the word to friends and family. The more people who know about this, the stronger our voice will be.

Sincerely,

Joe SolmonesePresident
