Congratulations to Barack Obama and all Americans, gay & straight, serving in the military or not. The repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell is historic and so important! I'm so happy we finally ended this discriminatory law. My nieces some day will ask what the big deal was!
And on another note, I hope the Senate ratifies the New START treaty with Russia. They would give the President 3 very strong wins in this lame duck session of Congress. 4 huge victories when you include Health Care reform.
However, I think the tax cuts for the wealthy is bull shit. But the employment insurance extension was hugely important. I crack up when the Republicans bitch about it. No one gets rich off unemployment!
