Rep. Roy blasts House leadership for blocking votes on drafting women
WASHINGTON— Rep. Chip Roy issued the following statement Tuesday after the House Rules Committee failed to allow a vote on any amendment against drafting women in the National Defense Authorization Act:
House Leadership expects us to push a green or red button on a "must-pass" defense bill and now is actively blocking a vote on a simple amendment on whether or not this Republic should force our daughters to register for the draft. This is unacceptable and cowardly, and it is endemic of why this institution and this town are so rightfully hated.
I will always vote against any bill that permits the government to draft my daughter and I will not support any Republican who votes in favor of its final passage, regardless of excuse.
