BREAKING NEWS: House Votes to Repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell
Just days short of Memorial Day and with public polls now backing the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell by wide margins, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to take down the policy tonight, 234-194. Apparently, five Republicans joined most Democrats and voted for the repeal while 26 Democrats joined most Republicans in voting against the repeal.
This is a huge step forward. Now, the abyss called the U.S. Senate is next for the bill. Expect Republicans to draw battle lines and fight this battle. They may not win, but they're going to get their shots in on this one.
