Washington, D.C.—Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (WI-05) offered the following statement after voting against the House version of the National Defense Authorization Act:

“Providing the brave men and women in our military with the resources necessary to protect our country has traditionally been a bipartisan effort, and the Senate has already passed a good bill with overwhelming support. Unfortunately, Democrats are playing politics with this authorizing legislation by denying us a vote on the Senate’s compromise bill. Instead, they forced a vote on their partisan version, which provides woefully inadequate funding, is filled with poison pill amendments, and has no chance of becoming law.

Moreover, the House Democrats’ bill would jeopardize our military readiness, leave us vulnerable to attacks by our foreign adversaries, and prevent the administration from alleviating the crisis at our southern border. Speaker Pelosi needs to do the right thing and bring the bipartisan Senate bill before the House for a vote.”
