Harry Reid Sinks Defense Bill With 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Repeal and Claims Republicans are Endangering the Troops

The gall of Harry Reid knows no bounds. He torpedoed the Defense Bill by attaching an amendment that repeals the 'Don't ask, Don't tell' policy. Then, he accused Republicans of playing partisan politics with the resources out troops need. How can anyone vote for this fraud of a leader?

From Reid's Campaign website:
Republicans are again playing politics with our national security. Today they blocked the Senate from debating a bill that would give our troops the resources they need to keep America safe – stopping not only funding for combat vehicles and bulletproof vests or measures to improve our military’s readiness, but even a well-earned pay raise to help our troops and their families make ends meet.

I am disappointed that my Republican colleagues put partisan politics ahead of the best interests of the men and women who courageously defend our nation. Democrats will continue to fight for our troops and will work to ensure that our troops have the resources they need to do their jobs.”

Reid is pathetic and needs to be voted out of office. I can't believe anyone in Nevada still supports him.
