The Heritage Action issued a letter Friday, urging Republican lawmakers to reject the Democrats’ attempts to “attach” the increase of the debt ceiling to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
The letter, obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, warned House and Senate Republicans of the Democrats’ plans of incorporating increase of the debt ceiling into the NDAA, the annual defense bill that directs funding for the U.S. military.
This year’s versions of the NDAA submitted to the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate are already replete with “policy concerns,” including expansion of the selective service to women, red flag provisions and discharge for non-vaccinated service members, the letter stated.
The NDAA, in it’s current form, would push through a woke military agenda like we’ve never seen before.
Our military is supposed to protect our nation, not protect our feelings.
Let’s cut the woke bullcrap out and take care of what they need!#NoWayNDAA

The $768 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) was easily approved in September in the House with 135 Republicans joining 181 Democrats in a vote of 316-113. A provision included in the NDAA would require all women to register for the draft at 18, just as men do.
