Congressman Murphy Statement on Don't Ask, Don't Tell Failing to Pass Senate

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Scott Murphy (NY-20) today released the following statement after news that the Senate failed to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," which he previously voted to eliminate:

"We all know that the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy is outdated, and has no business being on the books anymore. We should not be forcing qualified, patriotic and courageous individuals to lie about who they are in order to serve their country. The time to get rid of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell' is now, and, yesterday's failure by the Senate is a perfect example of why my constituents are so turned off by politics as usual."

Congressman Murphy, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, will continue to work with the Nation's military leaders to ensure that our military remains the best equipped, trained, and ready to deal with the challenges they face.
