A few days after he won the Nobel Peace Prize, President Barack Obama threw the country another zinger: He called for the repeal of "Don't ask, don't tell."
"Don't ask, don't tell" is a 1993 law that allows people who are gay to serve in the military as long as they don't publicly disclose their sexual orientation.
Pressure to overturn the law has increased in recent years. House Armed Services Committee Chair Ike Skelton, D-Mo., called for hearings on the issue in June, in part because of urging from his fellow Democrats.
Obama did not set a timetable for ending the 16-year-old policy, and it would require action from Congress, who might be hesitant to take on another contentious issue in the middle of the health care debate.
What do you think about the proposed repeal of "Don't ask, don't tell"?
