Gardner Reacts to President’s NDAA Veto Threat

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement today on President Obama’s pledge to veto the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) currently being considered by the Senate:

“As the President’s foreign policy failures continue to pile up around the world, it is unconscionable that he is threatening to veto a bill to strengthen our military and support our servicemen and women. Given that Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terror, is receiving billions in sanctions relief through the President’s nuclear deal, it’s more important than ever that we are fully equipped to confront the threats we face.                                                                                                                                        

“This bill would authorize funding for the training, equipment, and pay raises that our troops need and deserve. I call on the President to drop his ill-conceived veto threat, and for all members of Congress to come together to ensure our military has the resources it needs to keep America safe.”
