Repeal of 'don't ask, don't tell' is on track for Tuesday

Washington (CNN) - The Pentagon announced the repeal of the long-controversial ban on homosexuals serving openly in the military will happen on Tuesday.

But the repeal comes as two of the most powerful Republicans on the House Armed Service Committee call for a delay on the process of ending "don't ask, don't tell."

    If I was still in the service there is no way I would stay in.

    Everyone signed a contract and this should not go into law until the last contract expires period.

    I am tired of the few controlling the majority. This country continues to go backwards under the no leadership of Obama and his crew.

    You signed the contract just like everyone else stop being a cry baby and just you your job you agreed to do.

    Those two persons just need to accept the fact that the country has spoken loud and clear that this must be done. These guys are just too stupid to realize the facts. What are they doing in Congress??

    They are already serving in the military you clowns! Not every gay person I know joins the parade in NY! They fight and die and have fought and died for their country.

    Why is the GOP so hateful and afraid of gays? And conversely, why would any gay individual EVER vote for a GOPer?
