Murkowski Supporting Repeal of 'Don't Ask Don't Tell'

Libby Casey, APRN – Washington DC

Senator Lisa Murkowski broke ranks with most Republicans this weekend to support repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, the policy that bans gays serving openly in the military, and the DREAM Act, to let young illegal immigrants earn citizenship through college or military service.  The repeal passed, the DREAM Act didn’t.

The Senate continues its work Monday. It still has on its agenda the new START Treaty with Russia over nuclear weapons.  The clock is counting down on the Lame Duck session.
