John Boehner: I'd Be Very Surprised If The House Doesn't Decide To Defend DOMA

House Speaker John Boehner to CBN:
“I’m really disappointed in the President and the Department of Justice in the fact that they’re not going to defend a law that Congress passed overwhelmingly. It’s their responsibility to do that. Now, it’s happened before where administrations have decided they weren’t going to go out and vigorously defend a law that Congress passed but I really am disappointed in the President in his actions but if the President won’t lead, if the President won’t defend DOMA then you’ll see the House of Representatives defend our actions in passing a bill that frankly passed overwhelmingly. I’d be very surprised if the House didn’t decide that they were going to defend law.”
