"Here they go again. It's bad enough that Speaker Boehner and House Republicans are wasting taxpayer dollars to defend the indefensible Defense of Marriage Act - and losing in every case. Now, they have reached a new low - signing a secret contract to spend more public money on their legal boondoggle without informing Democrats. Their actions are simply unconscionable; their decisions are utterly irresponsible."

-- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi after it was revealed yesterday that House Republicans had secretly increased the budget for the outside counsel hired to defend DOMA by $500,000.
