Rep. Bob Good's Statement on Opposing the National Defense Authorization Act

September 23, 2021

WASHINGTON – Today, the House of Representatives will vote on the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). This bill traditionally serves to ensure the men and women serving in our military are equipped to protect and defend the United States. Sadly, House Democrats have put forward a bill that provides a blank check for President Biden’s failed generals and their radical political agenda, and does nothing to hold them accountable.

“Over $700 billion will go to Biden’s appointed General Milley, after he failed to protect our service men and women overseas, and hand-delivered U.S. military equipment to the radical Islamic Taliban,” said Rep. Bob Good. “And that comes after we learned that Milley was undermining President Trump and making disclosure promises to Communist China.”

“This Democrat bill is a clear demonstration of the Biden-Pelosi strategy to alter the social structure of our nation one bad amendment at a time. While President Trump fought to give our military pay raises, Biden and Pelosi are fighting to strip them of their 2nd amendment rights. They even want to force women to be forced to enlist in the draft and into combat, which is why I have co-sponsored the Don’t Draft Our Daughters Resolution.”

The NDAA includes policies that will strip service members of their 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms, require reporting of diversity and inclusion efforts, and insert Critical Race Theory into military training. “We have a president who thinks climate change and Trump supporters are the greatest threats to the country, and this bill will serve to embolden his senior Defense and military leadership, after they have clearly proven that they don’t even understand the true purpose of our military,” said Rep. Good.

Rep. Bob Good will vote no to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and encourages his colleagues in the House of Representatives to do the same.
