Elsewhere on Capitol Hill, a majority of House Democrats joined Republicans Thursday to vote in favor of a massive, $717 billion military spending bill, the National Defense Authorization Act. The 359-54 vote favors a bill that would deliver record military spending, with $70 billion for ongoing U.S. wars and $22 billion for nuclear weapons programs, including a new submarine-launched “low yield” nuclear missile. The bill now moves to the Senate, which could vote on it as early as next week.
