Senate Committee Votes to Abolish DOMA Regulations

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 10-8 to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act which regulates which marriages the federal government will recognize, in violation of the 10th and 14th Amendments to the Constitution—in this writer's opinion.

All the Democrats voted for deregulation and all the Republicans voted to keep federal interference in the marriage contract. Republicans have vowed to continue their fight for big government and federalizing marriage. In addition DOMA imposes high costs on private employers and raises the cost of regulatory compliance for any employer who hires individual with same-sex partners.
