U.S. Senator George Voinovich (R-Ohio) heads to a vote on whether to start debate on the National Defense Authorization Act at the US Capitol in Washington DC on Sept. 21, 2010. He and each of his fellow Republicans 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).
