Well, apparently in order for Senate to approve a law they need to have 60 Senators to vote for it, not 50. It’s called “filibuster“. Where is it in the Constitution? Right next to the “Christianity is the US official religion”. It’s not there.

At least the DADT has been repealed today, that’s a start.
