GOP Plots Bid to Override Obama’s Veto

“Congressional Republicans are vowing to make an effort to override President Obama’s forthcoming veto of a defense policy bill, looking to paint the commander in chief as putting politics ahead of American troops, The Hill reports.  

“Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) signed the National Defense Authorization Act on Tuesday. The measure next heads to Obama’s desk, where the president has promised to veto it.”  

“GOP leaders maintain they won’t let the action pass without a fight and will use the veto to argue that Obama does not care about defense and national security.”
