Defense Bills Defy Obama’s First Veto Threat

Among the things the Senate Armed Services Committee voted for that the administration didn't want are:

1. 7 F-22s
2. Development of an alternative engine in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter
3. 9 extra F-18s
4. A 3.4 percent salary increase compared to a 2.9 percent increase requested by the administration - this is how the pork proponents will undoubtedly pitch their plan. "We are for a bigger pay increase, you aren't!"
