Defying a veto threat from President Obama, the House on Friday passed a $612 billion defense bill in a 269-151 vote.
Check it out:
All but eight Republicans voted in favor, along with 41 Democrats who went against Obama’s veto threat and their party leaders, who whipped against it.
Obama has threatened to veto the bill over its circumvention of spending caps.
The bill keeps ceilings on defense spending in place under the 2011 budget deal that introduced sequestration spending limits, but would increase funding to the Pentagon’s war fund.
