repeal don't ask, don't tell: ask, tell!

The house of representatives just passed a stand alone bill spearheaded by Rep. Patrick Murphy, to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell in a 250 -175 vote, including 15 republicans.  Now, Senate majority leader Harry Reid must hold a vote on DADT repeal. The bill has a “priviledged” status which will allow it to bypass several procedural hurdles and move directly to a vote that requires 60 senators for passage.

The President, the Secretary of Defense, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and 77% of the American public want a repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell!
