Insiders Split On Prospects For Deficit Reduction, DADT Repeal

December 2, 2010

Congressional Insiders also weighed in on when the military's "don't ask, don't tell" ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the military might be repealed, and almost half of the Democrats thought that would happen in the lame duck session. But even that belief was mixed with a sense of caution. One Democratic Insider who thought the ban would be ended in the coming weeks averred, "If not in the lame duck, then in the courts." And another said, "Possibly in the lame duck, but if not, then not until there is a Democratic House again.

Only a quarter of the Republican Congressional Insiders said the ban would be overturned in the lame duck. And more than 60 percent said it would not happen until after the 2012 election, if ever. "The message of this election was 'focus on jobs,'" said one GOP Insider. "Repealing DADT is unlikely to happen any time soon."
