John McCain: ‘Betrayal’ to American Troops To Attach DADT Repeal to Pentagon Budget Bill

On the Senate floor yesterday, Sen. John McCain expressed his fears about attaching “irrelevant, very controversial issues” to the Defense Department budget reauthorization bill.

“It’s disgraceful to have it on this legislation without the survey being done about our battle effectiveness and the morale of the men and women in the military,” he told his colleagues. Sen. Carl Levin responded: Dude, shuddup, you don’t know what you’re talking about.
