Just the House, but good. For the record, I think the War Powers act is unconstitutional, BUT, that does not give the executive branch the power to just ignore existing legislation. Not their call.
I am also on record saying that we had no business going to Libya in the first place. And no, I am not an isolationist.
WASHINGTON – The House has voted down a measure giving President Barack Obama the authority to continue the U.S. military action against Libya.
The vote was 295-123 on Friday. The congressional action has no immediate effect on American involvement but represents a repudiation of the commander in chief.
The vote marks the first time since 1999 that either House has voted against a military operation. The last time was over President Bill Clinton’s authority in the Bosnian war.
Update: The House has rejected the effort to defund the Libyan campaign 238-18. I hope this is enought to get the President’s attention on this matter, but I do not have high hopes.
