Why isn’t anyone talking about the possibility/probability of overturning it in the House when our new folks get in there in January?

Even if the House passed the law, the Senate would vote it down. If the Senate were to pass the law, Obtuse would veto it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if the House has the testosterone, it can refuse to appropriate, or de-appropriate, anything it wants, at any time, since only the House can spend the government's money.

It takes appropriated money to hire homo-sensitivity counselors; money to schedule the meetings and hire the hotel meeting rooms where recruiting officers will be told how to approach their new, um, assignment; money to print new recruiting and disciplinary manuals. And so on.

And I'm not so sure the Senate would have the moxie to "go homo" again in their new, more conservative configuration, with so many up for re-election in 2012; and I'm not sure Obummer will have the nerve to veto an overturning of this Lavender Militia Act himself, for the same reason.
