National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 - NDAA 2013
H.R. 1960 - Roll Call 244
Liberty for All's PositionThis bill authorized $552 billion in military spending, including $55 billion more in spending than the amount authorized by sequester and even provided more funding than was requested by the President. At a time when the deficit continues to grow, the failure to rein in defense spending is fiscally irresponsible and is putting future generations at risk through reckless appropriations and spending. Various groups have identified hundreds of spending cuts totaling billions of dollars that could be made without jeopardizing our security. The bill also included language that encouraged military intervention and military aid to Syria. Liberty For All not only opposes corporate handouts and crony spending to the military-industrial complex but also opposes misguided interventionist foreign policy that puts American lives at risk and often creates more enemies for our nation.
