Last night, the U.S. House and Senate armed services committees voted to insert a repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" -- the 1993 law banning gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military -- into the defense authorization bill, which will be due for a vote in late June or early July.
Arizona Senator John McCain, and others, have voiced concern that now is not the time for the repeal because of the country's current military ventures across the globe.
"We have to be careful to make any changes to it, because we're in two wars," McCain said earlier this week.
McCain says the deal is being jammed through Congress by lefties because Democrats "think that after the November elections, they may not have the votes."
We want to know what you think: Is it too soon to repeal the law given the U.S.' military involvement in two wars?
