This week the House passed H.R. 2965: Don't Ask Don't Tell Repeal Act of 2010. You may recall that in June the House voted to repeal "Don't Ask Don't Tell", a vote I was proud to cast. It was attached as an amendment to the Defense Authorization bill. The Senate has been unable to advance the Defense bill, so the House Wednesday took up a stand-alone bill to repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell in an effort to enhance its chances for Senate passage. Our men and women in uniform serve us bravely and with honor. It should matter to no one what their sexual orientation may be, and all of our service members should be able to serve their country openly. I voted YES on H.R. 2965.
