Republican Representative Tim "Killjoy" Huelskamp will file amendment to restore DOMA...

Rep. Tim Huelskamp said he will file a constitutional amendment later this week to restore DOMA.

The Kansas Republican said he will be joined by other conservatives in supporting that effort.


“My response to this will be later this week to file a federal marriage amendment,” he said at a Conversation with Conservatives lunch on Wednesday morning.


When asked if leadership is likely to support efforts to restore DOMA, Huelskamp said he was encouraged by the statement Speaker John Boehner released after the ruling.

“I give tremendous credit to the Speaker of the House,” Huelskamp said.

1. I vote no

And hopefully more than 1/3 of us in each state will do the same.

3. Which will be DOA in the Senate.

 

So go right ahead and reinforce and confirm your bigotry for public consumption jackasses. Make our day.

5. Poor baby.

Not getting enough attention so he needs to try to crash the party.

A 'federal marriage amendment'...what an ass.

7. That'll fall flat on its face (at least, everywhere except the US House).

8. Huelskamp better check his math. Thirteen states have marriage equality.

That's all that's needed to block that pissant's bigoted amendment.

Won't even get out of Congress I bet.

On edit: I hope he's blubbering right now. I really hope he feels crushing despair clutch around his heart.

9. Denied, and will be removed by voters in 2014.

 

DOMA is no longer law of the land. Get over it.

11. Does he understand it takes more than filing an amendment, it takes a majority of both houses and a

majority of states to pass any constitutional amendment.
Offhand, it's 2/3 majority in congress and 3/4 majority of the states or vice versa.
