Ignoring a White House veto threat, the Republican-controlled House approved a $642 billion defense budget Friday that breaks a deficit-cutting deal with President Obama and restricts his authority in an election-year challenge to the Democratic commander in chief.
The House voted 299-120 for the fiscal 2013 spending blueprint that authorizes money for weapons, aircraft, ships and the war in Afghanistan - $8 billion more than Obama and congressional Republicans agreed to last summer in the clamor for fiscal austerity.

Of course the GOP has a huge military budget, their best buddies and largest contributors will reap the huge profits with that bloated budget.
The American Political scene-Dem or Rep, the best lying corksuckers that money can buy.
I think it is pretty hypocritical for the GOP controlled house to raise the debt beyond
the previously agreed amount.
They have been the one's hollering about the need for fiscal restraint and they are the
one's trying to incur more debt.
Oddly enough, Obama is the one attempting to stem the spending....
Gotta love those politicians!
The only load here is in thinking that the other party isn't playing the same games. Both sides reek, Dems happen to stink a little more imo. We as a nation need to start voting for candidates, not parties.
