Texas Rep. Wants To Award Chris Kyle the Medal of Honor; But Obama Could Stop the Whole Thing

I think we can all agree that Chris Kyle has undoubtedly earned the Medal of Honor a thousand times over. Texas Rep. Roger Williams is leading the charge with a bill that would request Obama award the highest military honor to the ‘American Sniper’. The whole thing hinges on Obama’s response, however.

From QPolitical:

A Texas congressman is lobbying to award the Medal Of Honor to Chris Kyle, and it’s something that every conservative is applauding. Chris Kyle’s life and military career were the subject of the book and film “American Sniper”.

The congressman that is lobbying is Rep. Roger Williams from Texas, and on Thursday he introduced the Chris Kyle Medal of Honor Act. It’s a bill that would authorize and request President Obama to award the nation’s highest military honor to the Navy SEAL for his acts of valor during “Operation Iraqi Freedom”.

The movie made over 400 million in ticket sales, and is sure to pass that mark. Kyle, who served in four tours in Iraq, is credited with the most confirmed kills in the U.S. military history. Only time will tell how the president will respond to this congressman’s push for Chris Kyle.

If Obama rejects this request, there will be hell to pay, I can assure you.
