Mike Waltz: Republicans Will Push to End the Military Vaccine Mandate:
Army Green Beret Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Thursday now that Republicans will control the House, there will be a push to end the Biden Pentagon’s vaccine mandate and bring back troops who were discharged for not wanting to take the vaccine.
“You’re going to see a push to end the mandate, probably through the [National Defense Authorization Act] bill, and also there will be a push to restore those that have been discharged,” said Waltz, who is slated to chair the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Readiness.
He said Republicans will also take a look at the religious exemption process, which allowed troops to request exemption from the coronavirus vaccine, but was approved by the military services for only a small number of cases, primarily for those already leaving the force. Federal courts so far have halted punishment for service members in the Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps who filed for religious exemptions.
Waltz said he expects resistance from the Pentagon, “so we’ll have to roll up our sleeves, and when we get into actual legislative language on really pressing the point that this one was developed very differently.”
“Most every shot that we take in the military that has decades of research behind it, number one,” he said. “Number two, the premise of the mandate was that it stops the spread. This has been shown not to be the case,” he said. --->READ MORE HERE

Sen. Marsha Blackburn Pushing to Ban Discharge of Troops over Vaccine Mandate:
Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is pushing for an end to the discharge of service members who do not wish to be fully vaccinated per the Biden administration’s military COVID vaccine mandate, she said in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News on Wednesday.
“We’re continuing to push this. When you have a military that is not meeting either its recruitment numbers or its end strength numbers, then it is imperative that we look at this,” Blackburn, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said.
“We are reaching out to different members trying to make certain that they are fully aware of what we are trying to do, and working with leadership to make certain that we protect the men and women in uniform,” she said.
So far, the administration’s vaccine mandate has led to the discharge of more than 8,000 American service members, with more than 60,000 potentially on the chopping block, at a time of historic recruitment difficulties.
“This does not make sense, that you would continue to remove people for not getting the shot,” she said.
Blackburn has proposed two amendments to the annual defense authorization bill, which authorizes Pentagon activities and spending for 2023, and has passed every year for more than 60 years straight. --->READ MORE HERE
