Senate approves women registering for the draft (and can override a veto)

Majority in Congress can override a veto? What kind of country do you want America to be? One that has no qualms about putting women in harm's way? Do we really think the people pushing for this sort of equality have actual people's best interest at heart?

"Override of a veto - The process by which each chamber of Congress votes on a bill vetoed by the President. To pass a bill over the president's objections requires a two-thirds vote in each Chamber. Historically, Congress has overridden fewer than ten percent of all presidential vetoes."
