We also recognize Rep. Ellen Tauscher(D-CA-10.) Rep. Tauchser is the lead sponsor of a bill to eliminate DADT. The bill, which is H.R. 1283, would repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell and already as 130 cosponsors. President Obama said he favors repeal of DADT but appears to want to go slow. Perhaps legislative action will cause him to move quickly to repeal DADT.
Congratulations to Rep. Moran and Rep. Tauscher for their work on the issue of equality for all Americans and for being Backbencher of the Week.
