Pelosi: GOP Defense Bill ‘Harmful’ to Military Planning

With the House set to vote on the fiscal 2016 defense authorization bill, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took time to slam the measure at her weekly news conference Thursday, calling the legislation “bad budgeting and harmful to military planning.”

“The Republican defense authorization bill is not only disingenuous, it is dangerous,” Pelosi said. “Republicans should acknowledge that it is impossible to meet the needs of our nation with the caps that are present in the budget.”
