The 377-to-48 vote reflected broad bipartisan support for the compromise package, one of the nation’s most expensive military policy bills to date. It passed over the opposition of a bloc of progressive Democrats and libertarian-minded Republicans who objected to its steep price tag and its omission of provisions they had proposed to limit the president’s power on an array of military matters.

Democrats Get Rolled by Trump and the GOP in Final Defense Spending Bill

Quote:
Among the things the bill doesn’t do:

There is no provision blocking Trump from diverting funds appropriated for military construction to border wall projects

There is no requirement for Trump to seek a new Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) to take action against Iran.

There is no ban on transferring more prisoners to the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

No restriction on Trump’s rules limiting the service of transgender troops
