Pelosi: All options are on the table re DADT repeal

An intriguing statement from the Speaker. All options? Like attaching DADT repeal to the CR or the tax compromise?

Drew Hammill, spokesman for Speaker Pelosi, said:

“By an overwhelming 40-vote margin, the House voted for the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ repeal amendment as part of the Defense bill in May.

“There has always been the possibility of bringing up the repeal as a freestanding bill in the House or Senate.

“As we come to the end of the session, all options to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ are now on the table.”
