In this day and age, why can't this country accept that we are made up of a wide variety of people... all with the SAME rights? I think the vote this November should reflect that we are tired of the same old good ole boys club. Are you tired of it too? I don't care if you are single, married, black, white, green, purple, gay, straight, rich, poor, or different in anyway. If you are a citizen of this country, you have a right to serve this country!Answer Question

While they are blocking this bill, that also means the republicans are voting no on raises for our military personnel.

Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins had been seen as the crucial 60th vote because she supports overturning the military ban. But Collins sided with her GOP colleagues in arguing that Republicans weren't given sufficient leeway to offer amendments to the wide-ranging policy bill.
Looks like this is why it failed to pass. Just more of the 'my way or the highway' from DC. So, Republicans can't offer amendments to this bill, but dems can put amnesty in a defense spending bill?
That said, I believe some of Obama's hand picked military guys are against lifting the ban. I don't personally care about DADT, but would rather defer that decision to those who serve.
