CALL TO ACTION: Senate Votes Needed To Break McCain DADT Filibuster

Joint post by Louise and Keori

Blenders, we’ve come down to the “Final Assault” on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Harry Reid has filed for cloture on the National Defense Authorization Act, which contains an amendment for DADT repeal. The vote to break the planned Republican filibuster will be on Tuesday afternoon. There are still a few undecideds/unknowns on this issue, and we desperately need your help to push this through.

Call your senators NOW and spread the word.


SENATE VOTE VERY TIGHT: For repeal to happen advocates need one more vote to break John McCain’s filibuster.  All supporters must call their senators now.

–Susan Collins (R-ME)

–Olympia Snowe (R-ME)

–Mark Pryor (D-Ark.);

–Richard Lugar (R-IN);

–Judd Gregg (R-NH);

–Jim Webb (D-VA)

OPPOSE any filibuster attempt

SUPPORT final passage of the bill

****REMEMBER**** Any attempt to modify the repeal amendment, such as by expanding “certification,” IS AN ATTEMPT TO KILL THE DADT REPEAL AMENDMENT.

Come on, Blenders! Let’s help consign this hideous, cruel policy to the trash bin of history!
