GOP House passes budget that cuts military pensions


boehner_gavel_apCNN reports:

Yesterday, the House passed the 2014 budget:

A $1.1 trillion compromise spending bill that funds the government through September won approval Wednesday from the Republican-led U.S. House and now goes to the Senate for consideration.

The appropriations measure, approved 359-to-67, would roll back some past spending cuts, raise federal worker pay and touch the everyday life of all Americans. Compromise on the fiscal year 2014 spending bill is a break from years of congressional funding fights that included a government shutdown last October. The Senate is expected to also pass the so-called “omnibus” bill and send it to President Barack Obama to be signed into law.

Wielding the power of one of the biggest purses in the world, the measure sets America’s national and international priorities. In the partisan atmosphere of an election year, the spending bill may be the largest policy decision Congress makes in 2014.

As reported at JFA, the House budget’s ONLY cuts are those that they inserted, instead of farm subsidy cuts proposed by Democrats.
