Democrats’ bid to repeal ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ fails

Measure to change U.S. military policy failed by 56-to-43 vote


 

An attempt by Senate Democrats to repeal the U.S. military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy failed today, as Republicans banded together to block the issue from coming to the floor for debate. The measure failed by a 56-to-43 vote, where most senators voted along partisan lines, the Boston Globe reports.

  1. Where is Lady Gaga and Hollywood when you need them? Aren't they so behind the times? Why can't they allow their gay military personnels to have a breather and have less worry? Let them focus on what is important, instead of worrying what underwear to wear.

  2. This blurb does not make clear that, in fact, the measure failed by a vote of 56 in favour, 43 opposed. The US Senate is awesome.
