         REP. LOUIE GOHMERT (R-TX): "If someone has to be overt about their sexuality, whether it’s in a bunker where they’re confined under fire, then it’s a problem. And that’s what repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell does. It says, ‘I have to be overt, I don’t care. I want this to be a social experiment."

         REP: TODD AKIN (R-MI): "So are we then going to then protect and condone homosexuality in the military?...Is this the sort of thing that George Washington or our founders would be proud of, that we are doing today in this quick flash before Memorial Day?"

         REP. TRENT FRANKS (R-AZ): "We’re going to say, ‘No. We don’t care what you say. You can die for us on the battlefield, but you have no input into this process.’ That’s a disgrace to this institution and it’s an insult to the men and women who pour out their blood on foreign battlefields for the country that we all love so much."
