US Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) talks to reporters following a vote on whether to start debate on the National Defense Authorization Act at the US Capitol in Washington DC on Sept. 21, 2010. Republicans had just blocked a start of debate, objecting to a provision that would repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and the DREAM Act allowing illegal immigrant children the chance for a college education. The vote was 56 to 43, with 60 votes needed to break the filibuster. (Photo by Jeff Malet).
