A Senate vote was expected today on a repeal of the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy that bans gays from the military. Senate Democrats are asking Republicans to aid in passing a bill that would let gays serve openly in the military.

A Pentagon survey of military employees and officers shows two-thirds are not against letting gays serve. But, Sen. Cornyn expressed his concern with repealing the policy, saying such a dramatic policy change would increase stress on the troops. Supporters of the bill want the Senate to stay in session until a decision is reached on the bill.
