LETTER TO THE EDITOR / THE STICK IN OUR WHEEL
By Roger C. Kostmayer
Alabama Republican Senator and former football coach Tommy Tuberville, is a dangerous threat to our national security. He alone is preventing more than 300 senior military leaders, and their families, from assuming our top US military positions. There’s no dispute about the qualifications of these elite officers, the Senate has confirmed each one.
The result of Tuberville’s legislative hold today is serious. For the first time in American history the US Navy, the US Army and the US Marine Corps are without a commandant leader.
The reason for coach Tuberville’s outrageous and self-destructive legislative petulance is his demand that the entire US military comply with his order that no female military or female family member be given transportation assistance for abortions. (Tuberville also opposes giving funds or military support to Ukraine.)
Senator McConnell and all Republican Senators must increase pressure to end this national lunacy by ending Tuberville’s legislative hold.[livemarket market_name="KONK Life LiveMarket" limit=3 category=“” show_signup=0 show_more=0]
