Senate passes a $770 billion defense bill that includes changes to the military justice system, pay raises for service members and establishes a panel to investigate the Afghanistan war.
The Senate passed a $770 billion defense bill aimed to increase pay for military members, provide aid to Ukraine, study the Afghanistan war, and overhaul the military justice system.
The Senate voted 89-10 on Wednesday to approve the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), sending the $770 billion, must-pass legislation to President Biden’s desk after weeks of delay.
What people are saying?
Zach Flowers It’s our bloated military budget. They couldn’t care less about the debt and the deficit when it’s something like that or a corporate bailout. They only care about the debt and deficit when theres legislation that might actually benefit the American people for a change.
Epic Cain If I hear one more politician say they “thank and honor our service members” I’m going off. 2% pay increase during a year with “record inflation (6.8%) not seen in 40 years” and they’re getting 2%. The lowest private makes $1833/month pre-tax. This is bullshit.
