The White House is warning that President Barack Obama will veto a widely popular House spending bill for veterans' programs and construction projects at military bases.
The veto promise comes because House GOP leaders are breaking faith with last summer's budget deal by cutting overall funding for agency operating budgets by $19 billion, almost 2 percent.
The House takes up the $148 billion measure Thursday.
The veto promise doesn't find fault with the funding levels in the veterans' measure itself. Instead, it says that the GOP moves on spending will force deep cuts to domestic programs like education, research and health care in subsequent legislation.
