Here's a man of action! Make it happen, Joe!
Sen. Joe Lieberman has demanded that the senate refuse to adjourn from session until Don't Ask, Don't Tell has been done away with.
Aware that if it is held off until next year he might lose the necessary support the appeal needs, Sen. Lieberman is urging his fellow politicians to do away with the policy and insist that the senate not break for the holiday until it's addressed. His spokewoman released a statement, saying:
“Sen. Lieberman believes that there are at least 60 votes to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ this year, provided that leadership allows time for sufficient debate and amendments. Wanting to go home is not an acceptable excuse for failing to pass a bill that provides essential support for our troops and veterans and failing to take action that the president, the secretary of Defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff have called for.”
Well said! What a wonderful holiday gift to bestow on so many deserving Americans - equality and respect.
We're rooting for you, Senator! Here's hoping you can make it happen!
