Fifty-seven members of the Senate Democratic caucus and six Republicans — Sens. Scott Brown (Mass.), Susan Collins (Maine), Mark Kirk (Ill.),Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Olympia Snowe (Maine) and George Voinovich (Ohio) — voted yes.

The House today passed a bill to overturn the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” ban on openly gay members of the armed forces, pressuring the Senate to delay its holiday recess and take the last step to end the policy by voting on the bill.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Democratic-led House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to repeal a ban against gays serving openly in the U.S. military.

On a largely party-line vote of 250-175, the House sent the bill supported by President Barack Obama to the Senate, where the prospects for approval are uncertain.

This was an orginal post of  the Sept 21, 2010 vote: We have an updated link for the Dec. 9, 2010 Vote.

UPDATE: Failed cloture vote.Three Senators missed the vote: Sam Brownback (R-KS), John Cornyn (R-TX) and Blanche Lincoln (D-AR). Brownback and Lincoln are both leaving the Senate after the lame duck — Brownback was elected governor of Kansas, and Lincoln went down in defeat to Sen.-elect John Boozman (R). One Democrat, newly-elected Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, broke with his party to vote no.

The final vote was 57 for cloture, 40 against it, just shy of the 60 Democrats needed. Here is a link to the vote taken today.

Vote Summary By Senator Name By Vote Position By Home State

Efforts to repeal the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” suffered a near-fatal blow on Tuesday as senators failed to end debate on the annual defense policy bill by a vote of 56 to 43. Included was the “Dream Act”

Tuesday’s vote does not end efforts to lift the military’s 17-year ban on gays serving openly in uniform, but makes it much more difficult to ensure a repeal is included in the final House-Senate compromise version of the defense bill that lawmakers will vote on during a lame-duck session after November’s midterm elections.

Gay rights advocates vowed to keep pressure on the Senate Tuesday, with some believing they will have enough votes to end the ban if senators votes on the compromise in December. Several moderate Republicans have said they would vote to end “don’t ask, don’t tell” only after they review a Pentagon study of how repealing the ban might impact troop readiness and morale. The study is due to President Obama and senior military leaders on Dec. 1. http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=111&session=2&vote=00238

      Have you seen it reported or discussed on the “news” stations? The only reason I know is because I made an effort to be informed.

      The majority of people have only heard about the GOP voting against DADT. That is the kind of bought and paid for corporate media that is brainwashing people into voting for the Dems.

      Nothing made up here, just honest observations.

    The UCMJ governs the individuals in the military. They (as I did) volunteer to abide by this set of rules as a binding condition for entry into the service.

    If Congress is controlled by Democrats how can they blame Republicans. Why not vote as the people that they represent desire instead of trying to push through they’re own agenda.

    By the way, I am a retired veteran and have the HONOR of having served with gay personnel. They obliged by the UCMJ while in. They kept their promises, why can not Congress??

      The issue is this was simply a political ploy to try and blame republicans and portray as the the party of no— they knew it wasn’t going anywhere, just like the Dream act. This is what Americans are fed up with. Vote each bill on its merits and in a sincere way. Thanks for your comments and your service to our country.

    This was not a vote against ending DADT. This was a vote against politics as usual. Harry Reid stuck an immigration bill, along with the military policy act, into a military funding bill.

    I applaud those that voted against allowing politicians to use a funding bill as a cover to jam through their social agenda, this has to stop.

    If a senator or representative wants to debate the merits of repealing DADT, then bring that up as a seperate bill and vote on it by itself. the same with the DREAM act that Harry Reid tried to sneak in.

    Please do not fall for the corporate media hype that the Republicans are obstructing gay “rights” and the Democrats are champion freedom. Do not accept the lies. We want change in Washington and all we have gotten the last 21 months is business as usual.
