The U.S. House of Representatives has already approved legislation to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) in this Lame Duck session. Senate Majority Leader Reid has called for the Senate to vote on the same legislation on Saturday, December 18th.
It’s time for you to do your part. Call the senators from your state and tell them to vote for the repeal of DADT.
Unlike some days, when I have had difficulty getting through to Senator Cornyn’s and Hutchison’s offices, this morning I was immediately able to speak to interns (I assume) who listened to my point of view and probably were tallying those for and against. Maybe it’s easier to get through because it’s Friday or people are Christmas shopping. Whatever it is, it seems like today is a good day to call and be heard.
Find the numbers for your senators here. Just click open that cell phone and call.
