Congresswoman Baldwin on 'DADT' (Video)

Just In: Rep Tammy Baldwin on House Repeal of “DADT"..... :)
“The repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ marks another important
milestone in our struggle for equal rights for all Americans.
Forcing service members to lie about their personal lives or
face discharge & keeping qualified men & women from serving
their country is a misguided, unjust & discriminatory policy.
I look forward to a full & expeditious implementation of the
repeal to strengthen our national security & afford our service
members the rights & dignity they deserve.”

Thursday Update: Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin's Floor
Statement on Repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”....VIDEO
“Today we have the opportunity to right a wrong. I rise in strong
support of repealing the military’s ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy.
Seventeen years after Congress passed ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’
we know that it is a misguided, unjust & discriminatory policy.
Not only does ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ damage the lives & livelihoods
of military professionals, it deprives our nation & our armed
services of their honorable service & their needed skills.
Under this law, almost 14,000 service members have been
discharged, including almost a thousand mission-critical troops
& at least 60 Arabic speakers and 10 Farsi linguists. It’s indefensible!
When the House votes to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ we will
have taken one more step on the path to full civil rights & equality
for LGBT Americans. But we will also change the course of history
for all the courageous Americans who serve our country & for
their families. In the land of free and the home of the brave, it is
long past time for Congress to end this un-American policy.”
