Polis Applauds the End of Discriminatory ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Policy
Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) released the following statement on the end of the discriminatory ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy, which was officially repealed today.
“The repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is a victory for the cause of equality and our national defense. For too long, this wrongheaded policy prevented brave Americans from serving in our military and defending our country just because of who they love. It undermined our national security by forcing gays and lesbians out of military service at a time when America needs the most talented and the bravest protecting us, regardless of their sexual orientation. It’s about time.
“I thank my colleagues who had the courage to vote to end Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell last December and applaud President Obama, Secretary Gates, Secretary Panetta, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and all who have worked to bring this day to pass. America will be an even stronger and better country with the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
