Mullin Votes YES on National Security Supplemental: “America will not waver from the side of freedom”

Tonight, U.S. Senator Markwayne Mullin (R-OK), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement after voting YES on H.R. 815, the National Security Supplemental Appropriations Act to fund U.S. defense interests in Israel, Ukraine, and Taiwan. Importantly, over 75 percent of the supplemental package will remain inside the United States, with more than 60 percent of the total funding going towards supporting the U.S. defense industrial base in states like Oklahoma.

“America is less safe under a weak administration,” said Senator Mullin. “U.S. strength has always been our best deterrence against Communist China, Russia, Iran, and all those wish us harm. Right now, America’s adversaries see that our nation is vulnerable under Joe Biden’s failed leadership and would love nothing more than to see us abandon our allies in their time of need. Passing this national security package goes beyond meeting an obligation to our allies, in fact, it’s squarely in America’s best national security interest. It sends a message to the world that America is still the beacon of freedom, and that we’re willing to invest in our own defense capabilities and those of our allies as means to ensure a safer, more resilient future for our country. That’s why over 75 percent of the package stays inside the United States to directly support our national security priorities at home.”

“Finally, President Donald J. Trump deserves significant credit for suggesting the loan component and REPO Act provisions which improved this bill significantly, and I want to thank him for working with us so closely throughout this process to land strong Republican support. This legislation, though imperfect, proves once again that the United States will not waver from the side of freedom,” Mullin concluded. 

The package, which passed the Senate tonight with overwhelming bipartisan support, includes four national security bills: the Israel Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, the Ukraine Security Supplemental Act, the Indo-Pacific Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, and the 21st Century Peace Through Strength Act.
