    House Defies Biden, Grants Troops Whopping Pay Increase!

    The House on Friday passed a massive defense spending bill that included several items and measures backed by Republicans, some over the objection of President Joe Biden and the White House.

    “Congress’ annual defense policy bill passed the House on Friday after a week of voting on more than 300 amendments, during which conservatives scored several victories on diversity, critical race theory and gender surgeries,” Fox News reported. “The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) authorizes funding for military priorities across the Department of Defense and Department of Energy, with that funding later coming in the form of a defense appropriations bill.”

    But one provision, in particular, was passed over Biden’s objections: A 19.5 percent pay raise for junior enlisted troops.

    The NDAA is typically a widely bipartisan effort, but the battle over cultural provisions alienated Democrats, prompting opposition from the White House regarding these and similar measures in the bill, Fox reported.
