LISTEN: Congressman MAC THORNBERRY Discussed The Possible Looming Shutdown And Its Impact On Military Spending

INTERVIEW – Congressman Mac Thornberry – (R-TX) –  Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee – discussed the looming government shutdown and its impact on military spending.

  • Senate Budget Deal and military spending: Senate leaders unveiled the deal Wednesday after months of negotiations — and after Senate Democrats agreed to set aside immigration policy demands. The plan still faces headwinds — particularly in the House, where conservative Republicans are balking at the increased spending and liberal Democrats want further assurances on immigration. The announcement came as Congress faces yet another government shutdown deadline of Thursday at midnight.
