Dallas Congressman Pete Sessions: DADT repeal is 'a slap in the face' to the military

Posted on 27 May 2010 at 1:18pm

Congressman Pete Sessions, a Republican from Dallas, spoke strongly against repealing “don’t ask don’t tell” moments ago on the House floor.

“I think it’s a slap in the face to the members of the military to be driven down a road that is driven by a political agenda from the left in this country rather than a wise policy,” Sessions said, his voice rising.

Earlier, Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee spoke in favor of repealing DADT.

“It is giving everyone a chance to be an American,” she said. “I believe it is an important step.”

The debate is continuing on the House floor, with a vote on the amendment expected later today. Watch live by going here.
