RIGHT ON.
WHY THE HELL DO WE HAVE A COMBAT SHIP NAMED AFTER GABRIELLE GIFFORDS ???

A Republican lawmaker has introduced legislation to keep Congress members’ names off Navy ships if they haven’t served as president or in the military.

If passed, the proposal would block the naming of two ships — one after civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) and one after former Senate Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich).
The proposal, from Rep. Steven Palazzo (R-Miss.), was filed as an amendment to the defense appropriations bill the House will start debating Tuesday afternoon. It would block funding to name a ship after a member of Congress, living or dead, unless that member has been president or been in the military.

“We have 76 living recipients of the Medal of Honor,” Palazzo said. “I would suggest that the secretary of the Navy start there.
