Miller previously under fire for voting with the Squad to defund the military and her anti-troop voting record
Taylorville, IL — Mary Miller has some explaining to do. One of her most prominent campaign supporters and financial backers recently said that joining the U.S. military is “like throwing your life away.” Does Miller agree? These comments follow Miller’s two votes with the Socialist Squad to defund our military.
“Mary Miller voted with AOC and the Radical Left, Socialist Squad to defund our military not once but twice, so it’s no surprise she touts an endorsement from a politician who says joining the military is ‘like throwing your life away.’ That’s a shameful thing to say and a dishonor to the service and sacrifice the men and women of the United States military make. It’s time for Mary Miller to stop hiding and start answering questions about her own record and the record of her top campaign supporters.” – Aaron DeGroot, Davis campaign spokesperson
These unacceptable, anti-servicemember comments follow Miller’s two votes to defund our military.
Miller twice voted in September and December against defense funding legislation, known as the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which provides the Department of Defense (DOD) with the legal authority to spend taxpayer dollars in support of our military. Miller teamed up with AOC and other far-left members of the Squad in opposing the NDAA. In December, Miller bragged about being the only Republican from Illinois to vote against the NDAA and called Republicans who voted for it RINOs. WCIA 3’s Mark Maxwell previously reported on Miller’s vote against the NDAA in December.
