In the House, the charge against passing a 2011 defense bill this session is being lead by Republican Joe Wilson of South Carolina. He’s expected to lead the panel that will oversee military personnel issues next year.
According to the Times, Wilson doesn’t want the bill passed because it’s full of provisions he doesn’t support, like repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, lifting a ban on elective abortions in military hospitals, and a change in immigration laws that give illegal aliens legal residency if they serve two years in the military or attend college.
