socalfitness saidBecause Sen Collins was mentioned, the point should be made that she has expressed support to repeal DADT, but did not vote for this bill because of her concern that Harry Reid limited debate and did not give her colleagues a chance to debate or offer amendments. Another example of Reid playing politics.
And, the Republicans would have debated and added amendments from now until Labor Day.
The Republicans have proven that regardless of how many concessions the Democrats make on any piece of legislation, the Republicans will vote, "No."
The Republicans care more about playing political games than running the country.
