"Thanks to Democrats, right now our military is operating under a continuing resolution that leaves the military short of the funding that it needs for the 2020 fiscal year," Mr. Thune said ahead of the House vote. "That has real consequences. In addition to leaving the military underfunded, a continuing resolution prevents the military from starting key projects that will help ensure that American men and women in uniform are prepared to meet the threats of the future."
"Obviously, we have a lot of incoming right now," Thune said. "That's the nature of the beast."
