Texas GOP Senator Ted Cruz is reintroducing his bill to reinstate military service members who were fired under the Biden administration's COVID vaccine mandate and give them back pay.
The Texas Republican said the GOP "won a tremendous victory in the NDAA by finally stopping Joe Biden's abusive COVID vaccine mandates that he had used to fire thousands of soldiers and sailors and airmen and Marines and Coast Guardsmen."

"That victory is worth celebrating," Cruz said. "That no more will servicemen and women be forced to choose between continuing to defend our nation and following their own conscience on questions of religious liberty and personal health care choices."
