"[W]e were going to go ENDA, but the community wanted us to do 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' repeal first, so we made that our priority. The Republicans wouldn't even vote for the defense authorization bill at the end of 2010 because it included repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.' I had to go to CPC members and ask for their votes for the defense authorization bill, otherwise we wouldn't have gotten DADT repealed."
-- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi speaking at Netroots Nation about why ENDA hasn't passed yet. She claimed the original intent was to pass ENDA before repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell, but that community leaders urged politicians to tackle repeal first.
