‘I Question Your Judgment’: GOP Pleads With Tommy Tuberville

via CNN

Republican senators are urging Senator Tommy Tuberville to lift his hold on over 400 military officers’ promotions, warning about the impact on national security.

Tuberville has been blocking the promotions due to opposition to a Pentagon policy on abortion and fertility treatment for service members.

The decision has led to frustration among his GOP colleagues, with some Democrats considering a resolution to approve promotions in chunks in order to bypass Tuberville’s holds. (Trending: Jury Reaches Verdict In Paul Pelosi Hammer Case)

“If you do not believe these holds aren’t having an effect on the military, I don’t question your sincerity. I question your judgment,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) stated.

“If this continues, this is one of the worst self-inflicted wounds in 20 years. We’re taking the military and throwing it in the ditch.”

“There are people filling jobs today that are waiting to go to their assignment, and they can’t get there because they can’t get promoted. They’re paying two house payments, not one. Their children don’t know what school they’re gonna go to. They deserve better than this.”

“It punishes those brave service members who didn’t develop the policy and can’t change it,” Sen. Todd Young (R-IN) said.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer criticized Tuberville’s actions, expressing hope for a resolution but also suggesting a vote if necessary.

Schumer added, “There has been a lot of negativity and dysfunction in the Senate these days, but Senator Tuberville has singlehandedly brought the Senate to a new low.”

“He should be ashamed of himself.”
