DADT gets repealed

The House of Reps voted 234 – 194 to repeal the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy in a vote yesterday. The repeal came in the form of an amendment to the Pentagon budget. In the words of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi:

“On Memorial Day, America will come together and honor all who served our nation in uniform. I urge my colleagues to vote for the repeal of this discriminatory policy of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ and make America more American.”

The Senate vote will come soon.
