Republicans continue their laser focus on the economy. NOT. Don't be fooled for a second. They seem more interested in legislating people's actions and taking away freedoms. They're trying to backward.
GOP have appealed DOMA (defines marriage as between a man and a woman) to the Supreme Court. An appeals court found the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional.
In February last year, the Obama administration said it would no longer defend DOMA, another reason for the Eric Holder witch hunt.
