Obama On DADT & Lame Duck Session
Good As You provides this clip of the president speaking today about his plan to work towards a Senate repeal of DADT during the lame duck session.
The Human Rights Campaign responds via press release:
“The President’s call for repeal today is a first step of many needed to fulfill his state of the union promise to end the law that harms our national security. We urge the Senate to heed the President’s call for action in the post-election session and look forward to his continued leadership in seeing this through. As he articulated, the legal challenges and political posturing have created confusion and now is the time to wipe this stain of discrimination from the books. It would be a travesty for a small group of Senators to continue to hold hostage a bill with critical military equipment and pay raises just because they don’t want to debate repeal.”
