Send the Law-Mongering Politicians to the Front Line! By Charles Taylor (Florida)
Representative Anna Paulina Luna, Republican, a former US service woman, is set to introduce a Bill, which provides that members of Congress who support military aid to Ukraine must themselves serve on the front lines of the conflict. The Bill, the SCHUMER Act, is an acronym for Senators Can Help Underpin Military Engagement and Readiness, which is satire directed to attack the Democrathawk, Chuck Schumer, who is worse than Biden and Hillary Clinton, looking over those glasses, gloating. Anyway, there is less than a snowball's chance in hell of the Bill getting passed, but the thought is entertaining. Really, if political leaders had to fight in wars, as kings of old did, then they would be perhaps more careful in staging conflicts. It is easy to war monger if you don't have to face the bullets!
Personally, I like the idea of the political leaders who want a war, going to fight one-one one against each other, and may the less obese man or woman, win!
"In what can only be described as an extraordinary move, Representative Anna Paulina Luna, who served as an airfield management specialist in the U.S. Air Force from 2009 to 2014, has drafted legislation that could radically change the accountability landscape for elected officials.
The bill, which was not meant to be public knowledge just yet, was leaked to The Daily Mail.
Dubbed the SCHUMER Act, an acronym for Senators Can Help Underpin Military Engagement and Readiness, the proposed bill aims to mandate that members of Congress who support military aid to Ukraine must themselves serve on the front lines of the conflict.
This initiative directly challenges the support for a Schumer-backed proposal that advocates for an additional $60 billion in aid to Ukraine.
In a bold post on social media, Rep. Luna addressed the leak, stating, "To whoever leaked my bill: Congratulations, you played yourself. I make no apologies. My bill, the SCHUMER Act, would require Members of Congress to fight on the front lines in Ukraine if they support Schumer's calls for American sons & daughters to fight."
According to the Daily Mail, the legislation would "require Members of Congress who advocate for providing military support for Ukraine to enlist in the armed forces and to serve on active duty in support of a contingency operation."
The bill states, "If a Member of Congress advocates for providing military support for Ukraine, the Member—
1.shall enlist in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Space Force, or Coast Guard; and
2.shall be assigned for not fewer than 6 months to active duty in support of a contingency operation."
Since Russia's invasion in February 2022, the US has committed over $75 billion in assistance, including $46.3 billion in security assistance to Ukraine."
