Hero of the Week Award: March 4

4 Mar

Hero of the Week

In a letter to John (I hate women, blacks, the poor, and gays) Boehner, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand once again proves to be the voice of reason and the voice looking out for American citizens. Senator Gillibrand’s letter to Boehner earns her this week’s HWA, (Not her first hero award on this blog).  Here is an excerpt of this intelligent and brilliant letter:

Dear Mr. Speaker, In a letter to you last week, the Attorney General advised that the Administration has concluded that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional and therefore will cease to defend the statute in pending litigation. It is in the best interests of taxpayers and the constitution for you to refrain from appointing special counsel to defend this law. A decision to appoint special counsel would be an unnecessary cost to taxpayers, and would detract from our shared goal of cutting wasteful spending and creating jobs.

Not only does she demonstrate great leadership by upholding the constitution (not a document well revered by the right wing), but she is also demonstrating fiscal responsibility, something the GOP purports to be good at–Oy! Don’t get me started on that one. Brava, to our Senator Gillibrand. Click here for the full article.
