House Republicans Are Standing Up For Our Servicemembers And Eliminating President Biden’s Woke Agenda From Our Military

This week, House Republicans will vote on the FY24 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which provides for our nation’s defense and delivers on a key pillar of our Commitment to America - a nation that’s safe.
The FY24 NDAA supports our servicemembers and their families through a pay increase as well as improved housing and access to healthcare while pushing back against the radical woke ideology being forced on our servicemembers.
MAKE NO MISTAKE: House Republicans will always prioritize military readiness and our servicemembers' needs over President Biden's Far Left, woke agenda at the Department of Defense.
