I8 House Republicans Say No To Finland And Sweden Joining NATO

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, and their quest to subordinate Ukrainians, Finland and Sweden have seen it fit to join NATO to obtain protection from the alliance.

However, 18 House Republicans have voted against a resolution brought to the U.S. House of Representatives that would lend support to Finland and Sweden joining NATO.

The House, however, passed the measure, which had bipartisan sponsorship, in a 394-18 vote, with all the opposition coming from the Republican Party.

Two Democrats and 17 Republicans did not vote.

However, the eighteen House Republicans who objected to the measure include:

Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.)

Dan Bishop (N.C.)

Lauren Boebert (Colo.)

Madison Cawthorn (N.C.)

Ben Cline (Va.)

Michael Cloud (Texas)

Warren Davidson (Ohio)

Matt Gaetz (Fla.)

Bob Good (Va.)

Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.)

Morgan Griffith (Va.)

Thomas Massie (Ky.)

Tom McClintock (Calif.)

Mary Miller (Ill.)

Ralph Norman (S.C.)

Matt Rosendale (Mont.)

Chip Roy (Texas)

Jefferson Van Drew (N.J.)

The measure, among other things, explicitly demonstrates support for Finland and Sweden joining NATO — which they applied to do in May — and urges member states to support their push to join the alliance formally.

Passage of the measure came precisely two months after Finland and Sweden applied to become members of NATO and less than three weeks after the military alliance invited the pair of countries to join the group.
