U.S. Senate Set to Vote on Sen. Rand Paul’s AUMF Repeal Amendment

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tomorrow, the U.S. Senate will hold a vote on U.S. Senator Rand Paul’s amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to sunset the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for Use of Military Force.

This will mark the first Senate vote addressing an AUMF since 2002.

Senator Paul’s amendment would take effect six months after the 2018 NDAA becomes law, giving Congress time to hear from the American people and thoroughly debate granting any new, specific authority. You can read his amendment HERE (https://www.paul.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/AUMFAmendmentto2018NDAA.pdf).

Earlier today, Senator Paul spoke on the Senate floor to demand Congress take its constitutional responsibilities seriously and vote on his amendment.

“I rise today to oppose unauthorized, undeclared, and unconstitutional war,” said Senator Paul.

You can find Senator Paul’s remarks as prepared for delivery HERE (https://www.paul.senate.gov/news/article/dr-paul-calls-for-sunsetting-2001/2002-aumfs), and you can find video of his full remarks on the floor HERE (https://youtu.be/uPrxC-1Qyb8).

Yeah it was over before it started. Good sense and the people's will are not represented. Only expansion of power and wealth for the few, at the detriment of us all.

I doubt anyone changed their vote after they killed it, it probably looks good to their donors. The country would be better if they all went to a certain special baseball practice session if you know what I mean.

Makes little difference when they voted, they probably had their roll calls in before the vote was cast. They knew it wasn't going to pass and that is one reason they let him have a vote on it. Now, it just gives weasels like Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie "the uber fraud" Sanders a vote to show to their bigger idiot liberal supporters as proof they are anti war.

These people are all the same, it just that some are openly pro war and the others just play pretend for the cameras.

Way too many gutless leaches that they are still counting the votes, I doubt anyone changed their vote after they killed it, it probably looks good to their donors. The country would be better if they all went to a certain special baseball practice session if you know what I mean.

That's awful, you want something bad to happen to people who support policies that kill?

It says on the roll call senate page - Required For Majority: 1/2. It seems somebody doesn't know what's going on.:confused:

The main takeaway here is that yes, there is a difference between Mike Lee and Ted Cruz. One is the enemy the other is not.
