U.S. House Republicans abandon fight for traditional marriage before it's over

Just in case you thought the national Republican Party was standing up for your beliefs:
WASHINGTON, D.C., February 9, 2015 ( – When the Supreme Court rules about whether to impose same-sex “marriage” on the entire nation, the House of Representatives will remain mum on the subject.
House Speaker John Boehner confirmed that the Republican-controlled body will not weigh in on either side of the constitutional issue.
“I don’t expect that we’re going to weigh in on this,” Boehner said at a press conference last Thursday. “The court will make its decision and that’s why they’re there, to be the highest court in the land.”

When the House wasted over two million dollars defending DOMA, that didn't accomplish anything but lining lawyers' pockets with taxpayers' money. Kudos to the GOP House for not wasting any more money on a lost cause.
