    It's bound to be repealed. Interesting to see what the cons in the Senate will do about it.

    Are they doing any legislation other than repealing it?

    And if they do repeal it. Wont that just return it to the pre-1993 policy? How does that help anything?

    When does Congress set policy for the military? Why isn't this the call of the Commander in Chief?
