Urgent Vote on Don't Tell Don't Ask
http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/post/ericasagr...

OFA Director Mitch Stewart just asked supporters to call Senator John McCain and ask him to stop standing in the way of repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell":

There's going to be a showdown on the Senate floor this week -- and we'll have a chance to do away with "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" once and for all.

Right now, though, it's not clear we'll have the votes to win.

That's because moments after Sen. Harry Reid announced the vote, Sen. John McCain again threatened to stop the bill at any cost. He said he plans to filibuster not just a vote, but even the procedure to bring it up for debate.

"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" isn't about politics -- it's about discrimination. And when Republicans defend discrimination of any kind, they need to know that their constituents are watching and ready to respond.
