The new National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has passed the House and the Senate and awaits President Obama’s signature. The vote  in the Republican-controlled House was 350-69.
The vote  in the Democratic-controlled Senate was 84-15. Only 19 Republicans in the House and 12 in the Senate voted against the final version of the bill.
Remember this the next time some conservative warmonger complains that Obama and the Democrats are gutting the military .
Every dollar that will or won’t be spent on the military has been agreed to by a majority of Republicans in the Congress.
