Congress Proposes New Ideas on Defense Spending
In essence, the House plan would provide the same amount of money for the Department of Defense next year as would President Obama ($585 billion).

Without such a comprehensive agreement passed by Congress and signed into law by the president before October, Obama’s defense budget proposals would likely fall prey to the sequestration axe come 2016.
