Democrats "aren't giving up on their push to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act"

Proud to be a Dem time*:

Roll Call: They may not have the votes for passage, but Senate Democrats say they aren't giving up on their push to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.

Dianne Feinstein, whose bill to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act has 30 co-sponsors, says they won't give up, even if a repeal takes years to accomplish. Hey, look how long it took to dump Don't Ask Don't Tell.

But, as usual, The Boehner is a spoil sport:

In February, President Barack Obama said DOMA was unconstitutional and instructed the Justice Department not to defend it in court. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), following a party-line vote by the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group, took steps to defend the law in court cases

Patience.
