    In this photo taken May 18, 2012, President Barack Obama speaks in Washington. Ignoring a veto threat, the House passes a $642 billion defense budget that breaks last year's deficit-cutting deal and restricts President Barack Obama's authority as commander in chief. The election-year salvo from Republicans also calls for an East Coast missile defense installation opposed by the military. The Democratic-controlled Senate is likely to scrap many of the measures.
