HUDSON SLAMS OBAMA FOR IRRESPONSIBLE VETO
 
WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement in reaction to President Obama’s announcement that today he will veto the bipartisan, bicameral FY16 National Defense Authorization Act which authorizes defense spending at the exact levels the president requested:
 
“With this irresponsible veto, our Commander-in-Chief is sacrificing our national security and putting our servicemen and women at risk to push his own big-spending agenda. The fact that the president is willing to hamstring our military as it faces growing threats like ISIS and al Qaeda unless he can waste more of our tax dollars on things like the EPA is absurd. I’m appalled by his political posturing and gamesmanship, and I encourage my colleagues to fight with me to override his veto and support our troops.”
