“I am very glad that a compromise was reached that will allow us to move forward with a vote on the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ For far too long we’ve asked those with the courage and honor to serve our nation to hide the truth about who they are as individuals. It’s a policy that has failed in its intended goals and done a tremendous disservice to men and women who want nothing more than to defend their country.  As top-ranking military officials have indicated, it’s also a policy that simply doesn’t work. I am proud to support this compromise, and I will continue working to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
