Gardner Condemns Veto of National Defense Authorization Act

Washington, DC --­ Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement today following President Obama’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA):

“With our men and women in uniform deployed around the world and working around the clock to keep us safe, it’s unconscionable that the President would veto a bill designed to give them the resources they need. The NDAA includes support for our troops and their families, resources for wounded warriors, and authorizes the funding required to continue ongoing operations against ISIS and others.

“When NDAA came up for a vote earlier this month, 70 Senators, members of both parties, supported it. It is my hope those same Senators will come together to overturn this reckless veto and give our troops the tools they need to protect our country.”
