“Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” Repeal Fails

Earlier today, the Senate did not get enough votes for cloture to end debate on the latest defense appropriation bill, which contained a provision which would have ended the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy.  By a vote of 56-43, the “nays” included Arkansas Democrats Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor.

I loathe these kinds of bills — something we need (like defense appropriation funds), and something we don’t (social engineering with the military as laboratory during wartime) should be in separate bills, not lumped into together!  It’s very underhanded and demonstrates what needs changing in Washington.
