“Tina! BRING ME THE AX!’
The United States Senate today voted 56-43, NOT TO APPROVE a motion to invoke cloture and move to consideration of the National Defense Authorization Act, containing both the DREAM Act and the DADT repeal amendments.Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid voted “no” on the motion to invoke cloture, reportedly a procedural move so he can bring the bill back to the floor at some point for another vote. If Reid had voted “yes”, that would not be possible.
All Republicans voted “no.” (FUCK YOU ALL!) And aside from Reid as noted above, the only two Democrats who voted “no” were Sen. Blache (Lame Duck) Lincoln and Sen. Mark Pryor, both of Arkansas.
The probability that a DADT Repeal will now bw passed over the next few years if the Republicans take the Seante in November are almost ZERO.
This is not unexpected, but still beyond fucking disgusting. And as for the COMPLETELY FUCKING USELESS Democrats and our “fierce advocate” they have but a few days to seize the moral high ground here and issue an immediate executive order stopping all DADT dismissals but most probably the next kick to the balls will be Obama and the DOJ appealing the court ruling that found DADT unconstitutional.
Only in the US Senate can a vote of 56-43 be a loss. Sheer madness..
And speaking of Madness. The Democrtaic Senate Press Conference will not have actual groups were involved in the repeal effort standing there but none other Joe Solmonese, President, Human Rights Campaign!
God, I need a drink. And a VISA.
