    So far the NDAA bill seems unpopular with people I have talked to about it... though that's only been six people. Have any of you had a chance to talk to others that you know that support the NDAA bill that president Obama signed into law???

    No, it won't hurt obama. Obama voters don't spend a whole lot of time thinking. They just go out, vote for the guy with the "D" after his name, and then sit home waiting for their gubmint check.

    There's enormous opposition to that bill in the Democratic community.



    FWIW only 7 of 100 Senators voted against it. 3 Democrats, 3 Republicans and one Independent Remmeber who voted Yea for NDAA..

    NAYs ---7Coburn (R-OK)
    Harkin (D-IA)
    Lee (R-UT)Merkley (D-OR)
    Paul (R-KY)
    Sanders (I-VT)Wyden (D-OR)NAYs ---7Coburn (R-OK)
    Harkin (D-IA)

    Sanders (I-VT)Wyden (D-OR)

    As to the House?

    93 Ds voted AGAINST IT, and 93 voted FOR it.

    Republicans? 190 FOR IT; 43 against it
