Senator Harry Reid has called for a vote to bring the defense spending bill (which also contains the DADT repeal language) to the floor for debate. This is the first step to getting it passed in the Senate. The Republicans threaten to filibuster it - to prevent the debate, because for Republicans, towing the line is far more important than the will of the people, the overwhelming majority of whom want this repeal. The Democrats are currently five votes short to prevent the filibuster.

Lady Gaga is motivating lots of people - especially young people - to call their Senators to ask for repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

But we shouldn't do this because it's popular; we should do it because our voices need to be heard.

Call 202-224-3121. The switchboard is open 24 hours. If you don't know your senators, tell the operator and they will switch you over. Tell your senators not to filibuster the bill.
