Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repealed (65-31)

I really hope that this does not result in soldiers being wounded or dieing; unfortunately I am not convinced based on the study that this will be the case. The policy is something that needed to be repealed eventually; the military may have just had their schedule pushed up a bit.


"By a vote of 65-31, the Senate has voted to repeal "Dont Ask, Don't Tell." All that's left now is for President Obama to sign the legislation, which I'm sure he will do as quickly as possible.

Earlier in the day, the Senate voted 63-33 to invoke cloture. Six Republicans voted in favor of doing so: Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe, Mark Kirik, Scott Brown, Lisa Murkowski, and George Voinovich. On the final vote, two conservatives, John Ensign and Richard Burr, joined in to support repeal.
