Harry Reid Forgets to Read Article One of the Constitution
Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader of the United States Senate, says that he would be happy to consider legislation repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell–as long as the President introduces the legislation:
While we do not have a Don’t Ask Don’t Tell bill introduced in the Senate yet, a number of Senators are working on an approach to get it repealed. We would welcome a legislative proposal from the White House on repeal so as to provide clear guidance on what the President would like to see and when.
I guess I slept through the part of my Con Law class where they explained that the Executive Branch was responsible for introducing legislation.
