Here Are The Lists Of The US Senators And The 147 House GOP Members Who Voted YES On The NDAA Without Removing Funding For The Unconstitutional FISA Courts

The House passed the annual Defense authorization bill Thursday, sending the $886 billion Pentagon policy and funding package to President Biden’s desk.

The vote was 310-118, with 45 Democrats and 73 Republicans opposing the measure. The House passed the legislation under a suspension of the rules, which means it needed a two-thirds majority.

The final version of National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), agreed to between the House and Senate, overcame opposition from hard-line conservatives who objected to its exclusion of a number of amendments passed by the House over the summer to weed out what they call “woke” Pentagon policies.

They blasted the NDAA as a watered-down compromise bill and urged the House to kill it, leading to disputes on the floor ahead of the vote.

At the end the Republicans betrayed their voters!

Here is a list of 147 House GOP members who just voted YES on the NDAA without removing funding for the unconstitutional FISA courts.

Notice McCarthy is one of them.
He is trying to let Democrats take back control of the House and have a fully funded FISA in an election year to go after Trump.

These people are sickening.

Here’s a list of the US Senators who voted yes on NDAA last night.

Ted Cruz can stop pretending to be a constitutional conservative. He voted in favor of eliminating our 4th amendment right last night alongside McConnell and Romney.

Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) railed against the NDAA for failing to include the GOP priorities.

“There is no justification for supporting a bill that does not materially change the direction of our military away from social engineering,” Roy said on the floor.

Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said he was “disappointed” the House didn’t get everything they wanted, but noted that legislation takes compromise.

“This bill is a compromise, but it’s a good compromise,” Rogers said. “It puts the need of our service members and our national security before all else.”

Conservative lawmakers also opposed the inclusion in the NDAA of an extension of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) through April 19.

“Surveillance of U.S. citizens, trampling on our most precious constitutional freedoms in this country with no reforms,” Rep. Bob Good (R-Va.) said on the FISA extension. “The NDAA is a bad bill, attaching it to FISA makes it that much worse. Every Republican should vote against it.”

Section 702, which expires at the end of this year, allows the U.S. to surveil foreigners abroad without a warrant, but lawmakers have expressed concerns because Americans can be swept up in the surveillance activity.

The FISA extension also drew some protests in the Senate, but the provision was ultimately left in the bill.

In the House, sparring over the NDAA led to a suspension of the normal rules, allowing the legislation to meet a threshold of support from just two-thirds of the chamber.
