Some Suprises in The New Defense Spending Bill

The House of Representatives passed a new defense budget for 2024 that comes in at $886 billion.

Even though this is a military bill, it has some hidden social policies included such as limiting abortion access for service members and a ban on transgender procedures such as cross-sex hormones and surgeries on military health plans.

The bill also includes a 5.2% raise for troops as well as a new branch of the military called the Space National Guard.

It also includes an auditor for the war on Ukraine, a cause that Congress has repeatedly rejected from Senator Ron Paul.

The Senate is working on its own version of this bill before some version of it goes to President Biden to sign.
