Who voted to waste more money on the bloated defense budget?

Peace Action reports that House Roll Call No. 495, an amendment that effectively freezes military spending at this year’s level, passed the House with bipartisan support.

Reps. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) and Barney Frank (D-MA)’ amendment cuts $1.1 billion from the 2013 Pentagon budget

All Washington State Democrats supported the amendment, as did one Republican.
