Well taxpayers it may have been another major failure, but at least you paid for it:

Nearly a month after a decisive ruling from the Supreme Court declaring a key section of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional, the Republican-led congressional committee that’s been defending the law in court announced today that it is abandoning its support for DOMA and legislation like it around the country.

But hey, the law firm that handled the matter was paid $3 million in fees to support the notion of inequality under the law — so good job John Boehner.
