It shouldn't be needed, since only Congress can authorize war in the first place. But knowing how this administration doesn't care about things like laws its a good idea. Not that the Senate will pass it, I'm sure McConnel will just ignore it like the hundreds of other bills the House has passed.

Oh, you must mean situations like when Obama casually announced he had committed US military forces to assist terrorists in Libya in response to a press conference question in Brazil. He hadn't bothered to get Congressional approval, too busy playing soccer with street kids. Of course when the 30 day limit on executive military commitments the Obama administration dug up a lawyer to issue an opinion circumventing the law. But remember, no one is above the law, except Obama.

Amazing how left wingers forget their side is guilty of doing the same thing they blast republicans for doing.

But that was Obama doing those things, so that's ok.

Nope...It's pointing out the DOUBLE STANDARD the Left uses dependent upon whether their object of worship is in office or their object of hatred...EVERYTHING they complain Trump does were met with the sounds of silence when the previous president did the same thing...and much more...

Where were you when Obama was droning people on a daily basis, with one of them being an American Citizen? I don't remember the left wing peanut gallery up in arms when it was Obama calling the shots.

If it weren't for blatant hypocrisy, the left would have nothing.

I think the poster is thinking more like Syria when Repubs voted against it.
