Rep. Luna’s SCHUMER Act Would Require Pro-War Lawmakers To Fight In Wars They Authorize


by William Upton, The National Pulse:

Representative Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) is set to introduce the SCHUMER Act, requiring any Member of Congress supporting sending U.S. troops to fight in Ukraine to join them on the front lines. The Flordia Republican’s bill is in direct response to recent comments made by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), in which he threatened that U.S. military forces would be sent to Ukraine unless Congress authorized additional funding for the nation.

“I make no apologies,” Rep. Luna said, adding: “My bill, the SCHUMER Act, would require Members of Congress to fight on the front lines in Ukraine if they support Schumer’s calls for American sons & daughters to fight.” The legislation would require any Capitol Hill lawmaker who backs sending American soldiers to Ukraine to enlist alongside them and serve a six-month tour as part of a contingency operation.


Earlier this week, Sen. Schumer attempted to blackmail his colleagues in the Senate into supporting a supplemental funding bill that would have provided Ukraine a new round of military aid, along with modest funding for U.S. border security and an overhaul of visa and work-permit programs for immigrants. “If we don’t aid Ukraine, Putin will walk all over Ukraine, we will lose the war,” Schumer said before continuing: “We could be fighting in eastern Europe in a NATO ally in a few years. Americans won’t like that.”

While the Ukraine/U.S. Border supplemental funding bill failed its initial cloture vote on Wednesday, Schumer revived the Ukraine and Israel funding provisions as stand-alone legislation. The new bill will face several procedural hurdles before it can receive a final vote on the Senate floor, which is expected in a matter of days.
