WRONG SIDE OF HISTORY, part 2

The following members of the United States Senate, today, voted against the bill to repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell, the discriminatory policy that blocked openly gay men and women from serving in the US Military - and forced gays currently serving into hiding.

The votes have been cast. The bill heads to President Obama for his signature. The ban has been lifted. The president has kept an important State of the Union promise.

With their vote, these senators join the 'nay'-voting members of the House of Representatives in being on the wrong side of history on this issue.
