There may not be enough Senate votes to pass the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) this year unless every branch of the United States military stops forcing servicemembers to get “vaccinated” for covid.
Thirteen Senate Republicans, including Rand Paul of Kentucky and Rick Scott of Florida, have pledged to vote against this year’s installment of the NDAA unless the military’s covid jab mandate is immediately repealed.
A veteran himself, Scott tweeted that in the past he “fought hard for big [national] security wins in the NDAA,” but that this year he will not vote to move the bill forward unless the Department of Defense (DoD) stops tyrannizing military servicemembers with its covid jab mandate.
“I think on the NDAA one thing that’s going to be important is that we don’t give cloture unless they agree that we’re not going to keep kicking people out of the service for their – if they’re unvaccinated,” Scott added in a statement to Fox News.
“I think that we’ve got to start standing up for people.”
In a letter to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Scott and the other 12 senators wrote that the DoD’s jab mandate has “ruined the livelihoods of men and women who have honorably served our country.”
“While the Department of Defense certainly must make decisions that will bolster military readiness, the effects of the mandate are antithetical to readiness of our force, and the policy must be revoked,” that same letter further reads.
Paul added in his own tweet that he, too, will oppose the NDAA this year “unless the Senate votes on an amendment to prohibit discharges from the Armed Forces solely because of vaccination status.”
That same amendment would also reinstate service members who were discharged for not getting jabbed, as well as issue them back pay for the entirety of their time off the ranks. […]
