Obama To Veto Bill

President Barack Obama is planning to veto a bill to fund military construction and veterans' programs. The bill is widely popular in the House, which plans to vote on it today. It would freeze federal pay for another year. Moreover, the White House said the bill violates last summer's budget deal. It would cut overall funding for Veterans Affairs operations by just 2 percent. That's relatively good for the VA, but the White House said it would force Congress to make deep and unfair cuts to other agencies.
