The annual defense policy bill is on the block and Democrats may have a hard time getting it to go through Congress.
The GOP can finally put some pressure on Democrats regarding the new "woke" policies that are being put in place by this administration.
Democrats will portray this as Republicans refusing to fund the military, but it goes much deeper than that.
Not a Political Football
I can tell you right now, Senator Schumer (D-N.Y.) will play this up for all its worth, a point that Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) recently made.
She stated, "The military seems to be Chuck Schumer's new favorite political football.
"We have passed the defense authorization 61 years in a row. Right now, I am confident there will be broad bipartisan support for number 62 — which makes this tight timeline even more unnecessary."
Schumer wants to push the bill through so they can keep their current agenda intact because he knows he has the numbers in the House.
That changes come January.
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) added, "The defense bill isn't the place for Democrats to indulge the wild ideas of their latest social experiments, like forcing women to register for the draft.
"If Democrats want to protect America and keep our troops safe, they should agree to pass a clean bill and leave their woke pet projects out of it."
There are also concerns over the vaccine mandates which have cost considerable problems with existing members as well as recruiting.
Republicans are going to do everything they can to delay this bill until the GOP takes over the House.
If they can do that, perhaps we can finally start teaching our soldiers how to kill and not about what pronouns they should be using so as not to offend someone.
