US: John Boehner Won't Allow House Vote on Defense of Marriage Act Repeal
U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated on Thursday he wouldn't bring to a vote before the House legislation pending before Congress that would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.

Asked by the Washington Blade if he's be open to bringing the measure to a floor vote, Boehner replied, "Congress has acted on this issue some number of years ago, and I think that the Congress acted on [it] in a bi-partisan way. It is the law of the land and should remain the law of the land."

DOMA repeal legislation has received renewed legislation since the White House announced on Tuesday that President Obama supports the DOMA repeal legislation, known as the Respect for Marriage Act. The president campaigned on legislative repeal of DOMA, but not until this week did not he articulate support for the Respect for Marriage Act as the vehicle to repeal the anti-gay law.
