Not-so-good News

Robert Gates says, "The president and I [are going to] push that one down the road a little bit."

This is very disheartening. In politics, "pushing something down the road" means ignoring it. In April, the national defense authorization act, which sets the military budget for 2010, will be passed. It is the perfect time to eliminate funds for prosecuting LGBT people from the budget. If it doesn't pass now, we may not get another chance for a year.

Call your Representatives and send letters to the executive administration! This month is the final push!
