Scott "Cosmo" Brown Commits to DADT Repeal – Senate Has 61 Votes Committed to ‘DADT’ Repeal NOW. JUST DO IT!

Senator Scott “Cosmo” Brown has announced support of a stand-alone bill to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in the Senate that pushes support, on paper at least to well over the 60-vote threshold.  As of NOW.  But what will happen if Harry Reid waits another week which will give anti-DADT repeal ReTHUGlicans a chance to pressure the few pro-repeal GOP members is any ones guess.

Said Harry Reid last night “The time for action is now. We plan on considering the stand-alone bill to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ which was sent over by the House. But let me be clear. We are very quickly running out of days in this Congress. The time for week-long negotiations on amendments and requests for days of debate is over. Republican Senators who favor repealing this discriminatory policy need to join with us now to stand against those who are trying to run out the clock on this Congress.”

Well okay then Mr. Peepers get off you ass and bring it to a vote TODAY and stop wasting time having daylong goodbye sessions to Lincoln and Dodd!
