    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0311/50491.htmlBoehner told the Christian Broadcasting Network in a taped interview that House Republicans were considering appointing a special counsel. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor told reporters Monday that Republicans would announce their plans to defend the law by Friday.

    But Gillibrand, who has become outspoken gay rights supporter during her two-year tenure in the Senate, implored Boehner not to use any taxpayer funds to support these legal efforts, especially given the current budget crisis.

    “At this critical economic juncture in our nation’s history, it is imperative that we as legislators do not devote resources to defending an antiquated and unconstitutional law,” wrote Gillibrand. “The appointment of special counsel and pursuit of this case is a drain on resources, time and energy and is not in America’s economic and social interests.”

    The Repubs promised all through campaign 2010 that if voters voted for them they would focus on creating jobs and cutting spending.

    Instead, their proposed budget would KILL 800,000 jobs.

    AND, they've been spending their time (which equals taxpayer dollars) on anti-abortion legislature - and now on anti-gay legislature.
    They've been spending their time doing the religious right Repub's business - and NOT the "people's business".

    They LIED.
    They're breaking their promises.
    They got a second chance from voters in the 2010 election and have blown that chance.
    They need to be booted out in 2012.

    Based on the FACT that every recession for the last 30 years has hit when a Repub has been in the White House, yeah the Dems ARE the fiscally responsible alternative!

    Based on the FACT that the only presidency in recent history to create a huge economic boom while also eliminating yearly budget deficits and reducing the National Debt - is the DEMOCRATIC Clinton presidency, HELL yeah!

    Now will you mind stopping your pathetic posting of right-wing BS and lame personal attacks that makes you look like shit?
