Senate votes to override Trump’s veto on defense bill

Senate votes to override Trump's veto on defense bill 1

 

The Senate voted to override President Donald Trump's veto of the sweeping defense bill known as the National Defense Authorization Act, delivering a bipartisan rebuke to the President in his final days in office.
Trump's veto forced Republicans to decide whether to defy the President in support of legislation that sets defense policy for the country. The legislation, however, originally passed both the House and Senate with veto-proof majorities and the House voted on Monday to override the veto. The final vote was 81-13, far above the two-thirds majority needed.
Trump had threatened to veto the defense bill, which includes pay raises for America's soldiers and modernizations for equipment, because it doesn't include a repeal of Section 230, a law that shields internet companies from being liable for what is posted on their websites by them or third parties

    This veto override should have been leveraged for a vote on the $2000 stimulus bill by itself.

  5. Since they didn’t vote, let’s remember this and VOTE when it is time.

  6. All members who go along with this should be charged with sedition and prosecuted! Enough is enough!!!

  7. Finally the Republicans did something right. I hope the Gorgia Senate race turns out electing the two Democrats. That way Mitch’s power will be diminished and some good Bills are passed to help Anerica. Including a new relief plan that is better directed to those that need it.

    Re: wasting $$ on hammers and nails more important than spending on citizens. Thanks guys.

  9. ALL bills should be ‘stand alone’ bills. Bunching bills together is used for ‘pork’, and should be discontinued.

  10. Trump is the human equivalent of a 419 email scam (nigerian prince email scam).

    The Spirit of party has overpowerd the Spirit of Patriotism!
    —Abigail Adams (1744–1818)

    • @Murdock Keith Patriots accept and respect the results of fair and free elections, as that is the basis of a democratic system. What is clear here is a corrupt domesday cult, who are so obviously out of touch with reality. Inauguration Day 2021 will be The Day everything becomes REAL for them. Can’t wait to see how they react to the world carrying on as normal without them!

    • From a letter to her son John Quincy in 1801 about her husband’s loss to Jefferson. Generally, Mrs Adams was a friend of Jefferson. But in the early 1800s their friendship was on the rocks.

    The Republican Party should be dealt when they’re up for re-election this how things get done

    • The Trump Party. The Republican Party no longer exists. This is why Trump lost the Election.

    • Bro omg imagine not wanting trillions of your hard earned dollars to land in the hands of billion dollar companies youve never heard of. Who could be so selfish to want to get what they are entitled to. Wait a second thats what liberalism is about. Getting money in the hands of people who deserve it. But here we are just selling out for 600$. You guys cannot be serious.

    • @M C think American voters will remember individual one and those that supported him for a long time

      @M C Is that what you determined with your research? Or is that something you heard from the chattering class on tv? It is a rhetorical question…no need to answer …..everyone already knows.

  14. Let’s cut the government’s checks. That will save plenty of tax money

  15. Just remember the long line of enablers, from Susan Collins all the way to Mitch McConnell and of course, those two in Georgia up for reelection.

    Whoever rejects Mr. Biden write those names down and vote them out of office.

      Classical agitator shenanigans
      Doesn’t specify which is “They” and who is “You”

    • A real snake oil conman. Get him out the White House and fumigate the property, it sticks sulfur.

      “Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
      ― Barack Obama, Nobel Peace Prize recipient.

      “Person, Woman, Man, Camera, TV” – Donald Trump*, dementia test recipient.

      “Let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can. Donald J. Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head.” – First Lady Michelle Obama

      “Where I am. I put – I’m working like a – my a** off – at Christmas stuff that you know, who gives a f*** about Christmas stuff and decoration? But I need to do it, right?
      Ok, and then I do it. And I say that I’m working on Christmas planning for the Christmas. And they said, ‘Oh, what about the children that they were separated?’Give me a f***ing break. Where they were saying anything when Obama did that?” – Melanoma, the first prostitute to occupy the White House.

  19. The beautiful thing is watching these ‘republi cons’ slash and tear at each other.

    470 hours, five minutes of the Trump “Administration” left to go.
