THE CASE AGAINST LYNN JENKINS CHAPTER 16 - SHE DOES NOT SUPPORT OUR TROOPS
This is Lynn Jenkins, she does not represent us
Lest we forget America remains at war, actual armed conflict where the members of our Armed Forces put their lives on the line every day. We have an obligation to the troops to support them with a robust effort. H.R. 5136, the NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT for fiscal year 2011 is how we make sure our military has what it needs to get the job done.
H.R. 5136 Authorizes appropriations to the Department of Defense for: (1) procurement, including for aircraft, missiles, weapons and tracked combat vehicles, ammunition, and shipbuilding and conversion; (2) the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Fund; (3) Defense Production Act purchases; (4) research development, test, and evaluation; (5) operation and maintenance; (6) military personnel; (7) Working Capital Funds; (8) the National Defense Sealift Fund; (9) the Defense Coalition Acquisition Fund; (10) chemical agents and munitions destruction; (11) drug interdiction and counter-drug activities; (12) the Defense Inspector General; (13) the Defense Health Program; (14) the Armed Forces Retirement Home; (15) overseas contingency operations; (16) chemical demilitarization; (17) the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Security Investment Program; (18) National Guard and reserve forces facilities; (19) military base closure and realignment activities; and (20) overseas contingency operations military construction.
Military Construction Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 - Authorizes appropriations for FY2011 for military construction, military family housing, and energy conservation projects.

Since there is no Republican in the White House Lynn Jenkins and the Party of No have turned their backs on America's military. She voted against H.R. 5136 on roll call 336.
