Cloture Vote on DADT Repeal Passes 63-33
Just so we’re clear. This is not the passage of the actual DADT repeal bill. This is the vote that allows a straight majority vote, which will likely come tomorrow. And since there are many more than 51 votes for repeal, that means that the actual bill will pass tomorrow and likely be signed by the president early next week. This vote means that DADT is history.
Meanwhile, in a 55- 41 vote this morning the Senate didn’t get the 60 votes needed to limit debate and move forward on the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act.
