Only in Washington could the defeat of a Defense bill somehow be a victory for unborn babies. Or, as abortion-loving liberals like to call them, “fetuses,” since in no way should an unborn baby get the same rights as a born one.
Back to the Defense bill…
A massive defense spending bill that includes a repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law banning gays from serving openly in the military stalled Tuesday after failing to clear a procedural hurdle in the Senate.
Senate Democrats were unable to corral the 60 votes necessary to overcome Republican objections blocking the package from advancing to the floor. The bill failed in a 56-43 vote.
Democrats had also intended to offer the DREAM Act, a proposal giving young illegal immigrants who attend college or join the military a path to citizenship, as an amendment — a move that injected a heightened level of controversy into the debate over the past week. Plus the bill included a measure to repeal a longstanding ban on abortions at U.S. military hospitals overseas.
Demoncrats are getting especially desperate this election cycle. I’m sure Harry Reid or some other despicable human being put that abortion provision in the bill so Dems could get more campaign cash from abortion “rights” groups. The ones with the blood of millions of unborn babies on their hands.
The Senate blocked the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” It probably should be repealed, but now that hermaphrodite Lady Gaga has gotten involved in supporting the repeal, I think it’s safe to say that DADT will be around for a while longer. The general rule of thumb: do the opposite of what the lady wearing the meat dress wants to do.
Apparently Harry Reid limited debate on the bill, specifically as a way to quite those Republicans (and sane Democrats) who wished to voice opposition to the DREAM act, essentially an amnesty plan for young illegals. The DREAM act would give “young illegal immigrants who attend college or join the military a path to citizenship,” It might be a good idea, but if it’s so great, why did Mr. Reid limit debate on the matter? He wouldn’t be trying to force these measures on the American people, would he?
Ultimately, today was a victory for babies and a defeat for illegal immigrant drag queens who want to join the Navy.
I really hope Harry Reid loses re-election. Even if the Democrats hold onto the Senate, at least he’ll be in a retirement home in Reno. Or something like that.
