    That's what this is about. Obama and the Leadership are putting this in the Defense Appropriations Bill for FY2010, just like we've been hearing. Meanwhile, the Pentagon is moving forward to plan the implementation.

    Doesn't anyone get this? The Pentagon ISN'T WAITING for the repeal to be passed, they're planning the implementation!!!

    My respect for the discourse around here is going right down the toilet today. We've got so many chickens running around with their heads cut off.

      There is talk of putting it in.  It is NOT in the budget that Obama submitted.  That's the problem.  That's why, once again, if the Dems hem and haw and wait for a year's study, with all the attacking, the Democrats will get frightened and it'll be lost (like health care).

      and 100% behind the effort.  I'm only commenting on the talk about it taking as much as two years to implement.  I don't want to see this slow-walked with implementation planning, studies, etc.  Just do it now.
