Yeah! No More Discrimination.

In the U.S the House of representatives just passed a bill that would now allow Gay people to openly serve in the military. This means that now the bill must move onto the senate. Now the problem is the Republicans are more worried about the millionaires having to pay a bit more in taxes then giving the well deserved people who are Gay in this country to have equal rights. I don't see how the party of Freedom and American values or so they say doesn't want to support this bill. Isn't it the American value according to Thomas Jefferson " Equal rights for all special privileges for none." Yet the Republicans believe equal rights for all unless you are a gay person who is willing to fight and die for your country. The Republicans in the Senate are voting against the bill even though four Republican senators said they would vote for it. All the Republican senator want to continue discriminating gay people who are willing to fight for the country these senators so call "represent"just to make sure taxes don't go up for the people who are rich. A study showed that allowing openly gay people in the millitary would have minimal effects on the military. Republicans in the senate have a choice on whether to actually stick to the American value or continue deaning people freedom from big brother who tells gay people what they can't and can't do.
Washington (CNN) -- The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to overturn the ban on openly gay and lesbian soldiers serving in the U.S. military, passing legislation repealing the controversial "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
The bill -- a so-called "stand alone" measure not tied to any other legislative items -- passed 250 to 175 on mostly partisan lines. It now advances to the Senate.
