:This bill is critical to our national security and the protection of our troops who are in harm’s way. As conflict spreads through the Middle East and Russia continues its aggressive actions, we have an obligation to ensure our military is trained, equipped and prepared for the threats we face.
"By using our servicemen and women as a bargaining chip to try to force Congress to raise domestic spending levels, the President is playing political games with our national security.
"President Obama needs to drop his irresponsible veto threat and sign the bill so we can ensure that our servicemen and women can complete their missions successfully and return home safely."
NDAA authorizes $612 billion, the amount requested by the White House, for our troops and national security needs during FY16. The bill also contains important national security policy prescriptions.
