Rep. Chip Roy went OFF on his Republican and Democrat colleagues after the House Armed Services Committee voted to approve an amendment to a defense policy bill that would make women eligible for the Selective Service System (a.k.a. the draft).
The measure – that was originally introduced by Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-Pa.) – passed through the committee after a late-night vote on Thursday.
Multiple republicans broke ranks and sided with the left to ensure it passed.
Roy, who represents Texas’ 21st congressional district, unleashed an explosive 9-part twitter thread where he lambasted the lawmakers on both sides. He began by explaining that he doesn’t trust them to “do anything at all,” especially when it comes to promises they make about his daughter and others being drafted to “non combat” roles.
