Defense of DOMA could cost House millions

The GOP-led legal defense of the Defense of Marriage Act could cost up to $2 million after a new cap on litigation expenses was approved without Democratic input. The $500,000 increase in the spending cap drew condemnation from Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who accused her Republican counterparts of hiding the new contract. 

"Republicans should not be spending $2 million to defend discrimination in our country," Pelosi said.
