Rep. Patrick Murphy Vows To Keep Fighting For DADT Repeal For This Year Despite Robert Gates Letter To Hold Off
Said Murphy to The Advocate:
“After my three years in Washington, I think when folks tell you to walk away, that’s usually a sign that you’re getting close. So we have to keep working, people need to call their members of Congress, their Senators. Obviously, the letter was a setback, but I know we’re on the right side of history here and we’re going to keep fighting till we get this done this year…I said from the get-go that just because change is hard it doesn’t mean it can’t happen. We have a bi-partisan bill to repeal ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ in the House of Representatives. We have Republican support, we have Colin Powell now on board, we even have Dick Cheney calling for repeal. We need to keep fighting.”
Why can’t he be our President?
