Vote Delayed on the Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
(Washington, DC) – The Log Cabin Republicans are troubled by the parochial political actions of Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) who has refused to compromise with Republicans by holding a full and open debate on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Rather than reaching a compromise allowing for ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ to be repealed, the Senate has postponed action until after the election.
“Obviously, we are disappointed. Senator Reid failed to reach a compromise with Republicans and our military servicemembers will need to wait until the November elections are over for the US Senate to vote on a repeal.” says R. Clarke Cooper, Executive Director, Log Cabin Republicans. “This partisan arrogance is an example of why voters will be turning away from Democrats on November 2nd.”
Yeah. It's all Reid's fault. (is there an icon for rolling eyes?)
