Congress BLOCKS Socialist Bill That Would Have Cut Defense Spending By $74 Billion

, , 212 Comments

Democrats aren’t just trying to defund the police. They’re trying to defund America’s armed forces!

But thankfully, the radical Democrat plan is falling flat on its face…

A terrifying report from Defense News confirms that Congress just BLOCKED a bill that Senator Bernie Sanders authored which would have cut America’s defense spending budget by $74 million. The bill was blocked not only by the U.S. Senate, but also by the U.S. House as well. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell even referred to the bill as a “socialist spending spree” and even said that it would “literally decimate” America’s defense if passed.

“Spending Spree” Bill Falls Flat

In a major defeat for Democrat Senator Bernie Sanders, Congress made the abrupt decision to stop 2 bills which were started by him that would have slashed America’s national security budget by $74 billion.

The Senate voted 23-77 against an amendment.

On Tuesday, the House ALSO rejected a companion bill, 93-324, which is roughly a 3-to-1 margin as well. Democrats split, 92-139, while all 185 Republicans voted “no.”

McConnell Responds

Needless to say, Republicans were furious with the idea of defunding America’s troops. Especially Mitch McConnell.

McConnell responded to the bill, saying:

“The Democratic leader, who in almost every floor speech tries to accuse this administration of being too soft on America’s adversaries, wants to literally decimate our defense budget to finance a socialist spending spree.”

McConnell continued:

“Defense spending demonstrates our will to defend ourselves and our interests in a dangerous world. Keeping our nation safe is our foremost constitutional duty. We cannot shirk it.”

    YES, we absolutely need a strong military! Only a COMMUNIST would want police defunded and our military weakened so they could push their Control Agenda through and leave our country at their mercy. This is what is going on in the DemocratIc controlled cities right now with the riots & destruction. ALL Americans that want to live in a free country needs to WAKE UP TO THE TRUTH of what is happening to this country!!! We all need to decide If we want to bow to Communism & have all our freedoms taken from us OR do we still want a country with all the freedoms we enjoy now?? Myself, I CHOOSE FREEDOM !

    It’s very concerning that in this country where freedom and liberty and the pursuit of happiness are guaranteed and you don’t fear being sold out to a tyrannical government. Things that many people will never experience and many more people would for. How are these liberties being attacked and so many are just watching, showing no concern! Stand on your feet or live on your knees.

    Troops were never needed in Afghanistan nor Iraq, seriously sinful waste of lives and money, the Posse Comitatus act has never prohibited the use of troops patrolling and defending our borders and the military would be serving a genuinely useful purpose at a fraction the cost of what troops in predominantly islamic nations does or ever would, $74,000,000,000 is a pittance compared to what we have spent on Middle Eastern operations and will continue to spend as long as we have our military carrying out operations in that part of the world.

    The US needs a strong military. Right now the sad reality is the military is needed here at home defending our government buildings. The city’s run by DemoRats are being destroyed by stupid people and that city refuses military help to try and save what’s left. DemoRats are trying to blame all this destruction on President Trump. How low can these dumbshits go? Wake up America, take a look around. Do you like the way your DemoRats have worked for you? What have they done for you? The worst thing they could do is defund our military.

    If the vote was so overwhelming against Bernie Sanders bill why are you saying that Democrats want to defund our military, an overwhelming majority of democrats voted against it, Seth Connell get your facts right. You are helping this country to remain bitterly partisan, you need to sue the college you went to, to get your degree in journalism because they did not teach you how to be a journalist, you are a right wing conspiracy theorist!!
