“The President, the Commander in Chief, has vetoed money to fund our military.” said Rep. Poe. “His veto yesterday of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which passed both chambers with overwhelming bipartisan support, is not only reckless and irresponsible, it is an action against the military. The readiness of our men and women in uniform depends on the support of Congress and the President. During a time of political unrest in the Middle East, ensuring our military is fully equipped and prepared is in the greatest interest of our national security. The President should put politics aside and not jeopardize the safety of Americans at home and abroad.”
