    For the first part, how many rights make a wrong, there are two possible correct answers. 4 or 228.
    because that is how many are on the Republican Conference, namely John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Greg Walden, and James Lankford.​
    because that is how many members of the House who voted on H.Res. 5: Adopting rules for the One Hundred Thirteenth Congress. Introduced by Rep. Eric Cantor [R-VA7] on January 3, 2013 That is every single republican except Walter Jones of the 3rd district of North Carolina and not one democrat.​

    For the second part all of the follow are part of the correct answer.
    The rules for the most part were without contention. The wrong part as stated by Ariane de Vogue:
    Boehner Bolsters Support of Defense of Marriage Act - ABC News
    de Vogue points out:
    Huffington Post also mentioned:

    Let's look at some reasons the above might be considered a wrong.

    The amount might be one issue. As posted by Joel Connelly:

    Might be the way it was presented to the House. Connelly continues:
    What also might be considered a wrong is the vechile with which House is using to enact this rule.
    Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Well at least the House is fighting for something with is legally defensible. Maybe not according to David Lat.
    Second Circuit Strikes Down Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act « Above the Law: A Legal Web Site – News, Commentary, and Opinions on Law Firms, Lawyers, Law School, Law Suits, Judges and Courts
    Lat also comments on who is getting paid by the American taxpayer to execute the legal battle.
    One lose is not so bad, is it? Lat also comments on progress.
    If the republicans of the house were to argue against funding the rest of the Sandy relief bill, raising the debit ceiling, or any number of other issues on the biases that they are the responsible ones with tax payers money they want to look to what Carolyn Lockhead brought attention to.

    Will this be a thorn in republicans side until they cease giving lawyers blank checks to argue legal cases they feel should be fought on moral grounds? Well, it just might be.

    So in conclusion how many wrongs make a right? Apparently a lot of wrongs make the right.

    All that ^ to tell us that you're upset with the fact that Republicans still have a say in how this country is run, boo f-in who. It's what happens when your party decides that gays and the War on Guns are the most important issues when reality dictates they are not. Cry me a river.
