Rep. Chip Roy Introduces Bill To Reinstate Troops Discharged Over Inoculation Mandate
Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) introduced a bill Tuesday that would bring back servicemembers who were previously kicked out of the military over the Biden administration’s Covid-19 inoculation mandate, according to a recent Breitbart News exclusive.
The bill, called the Service Restoration Act, also prevents troops from facing punishment or any special negative treatment as retribution for not taking the experimental mRNA injection. “Adverse action” as defined by the bill included “retaliation,” “punishment,” “disparate treatment,” or requirements to wear masks/be forced into sub-standard housing.
“Because of President Biden’s power-hungry, anti-science COVID-19 vaccine mandate, hundreds of valuable American service members are being forced out of our military, taking with them years of subject-matter expertise, careers of selfless sacrifice, and lifelong dreams of military service,” Congressman Roy said in an exclusive statement to Breitbart. “This is strategically foolish, profoundly un-American, and completely unacceptable.”
“I introduced the Service Restoration Act to ensure that the brave men and women of our armed forces are not fired over this wrong-headed mandate — whether it be for a medical, religious, conscientious or any reason — and that those already dismissed are able to get back to honorably serving their country with their time of service and records rightfully restored.”
There are reportedly seven Republican co-sponsors for the bill, including Reps. Marjorie Taylor-Greene (GA); Michael Cloud (TX); Bill Posey (FL); Matt Rosedale (MT); Louie Gohmert (TX); Van Taylor (TX); and Bob Good (VA).
This bill comes after the military already has discharged over 500 service members as a punishment for not complying with the Biden regime’s Covid-19 inoculation mandate issued back in August.
Big League Politics has covered Chip Roy’s advocations for the individual liberties of the American people concerning the right to choose the medicine one takes in the past, including in a letter the Texas congressman wrote to fellow Republicans urging them to block any and all legislation that continues to fund vaccine mandates.
“Continuing to fund this kind of garbage is inexcusable and is precisely what our constituents want us to oppose, and oppose loudly,” argued an open letter signed by Roy and other Republican House members at the end of November.
