The Senate approved a bipartisan measure Thursday limiting President Donald Trump's authority to launch military operations against Iran. Eight Republicans joined with Democrats to pass the resolution by a 55-45 vote. The rebels were Lamar Alexander; Bill Cassidy; Susan Collins; Mike Lee; Jerry Moran; Lisa Murkowski; Rand Paul; and Todd Young. The measure, authored by Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., says Trump must win approval from Congress before engaging in further military action against Iran.

Without Presidential approval, it isn't worth the paper it is written on. Eight Republicans just primaries themselves. PDT has over 90% backing.

These Senators are making it difficult for Trump to do his job. The Senators should keep their mouth shuts. Barr and McConnell should agree with this as they scolded Trump for daring to speak.

#1 now we know their names. Trump doesn't have to declare war to Iran. Iran will self implode by itself with sanctions and a revolution from within.

I still think it is a good idea to limit the powers of government any way we can. We have been fighting never ending wars for most of this nation's history, yet we have been attacked very few times and war has rarely been declared by congress. It is far too easy for the president, any president, to just go out and start another one. How long have we been in the middle east? 30 years? Isn't that long enough for a war? It only took four years to defeat the Axis. It took about four years to lose in Korea and maybe 15 to lose in Viet Nam. Just shut it all down. Defense contractors and their bribe accepting political buddies can go get honest jobs.

Once you buy a Senator, they stay bought. Here is an sort of old article from PolitiFact that claims just because someone in the US Government took money from a group with Iran in it's name as campaign contributions, doesn't mean it is a bribe. Besides they claim, both sides took the Iran PAC money. So what? It's wrong and playing word games is the go to argument for every rat. If you need to take money from foreign interests, you need to structure a better campaign. Foreigners must marvel at how easy it is to buy the laws, regulations and favors they want from craven US politicians. Rand Paul and ex senator 'stole his seat' franken were two who took the money-

Bill should be called “We apologize to the Ayatollah for taking out his favorite killer and maimer of American troops, General Soleimani, and promise to keep Trump from ever doing it again.” Bill does not mean anything because President Trump does not have any desire to go to war with Iran. The President will defend American military whenever Iran kills American soldiers or threatens American embassies as Soleimani did and would continue to do if he wasn’t droned outside of Bagdah Int’l Airport. But our President has no intention of invading Iran. Note that Obama ignored the current War Powers Act requiring a 90 day notification of Congress when he went to war with Libya. Obama knew Act had no teeth and that the Democrats in Congress would acquiescence to whatever Obama desired.

The Senate are going to look like fools if the Ayatollahs misinterpret what they just did as meaning that President Trump is now impotent to strike back at them, and Iran takes it upon itself to launch a military strike against US forces and kills and wounds US troops in the Middle East. There was really no reason for such a resolution since Trump has shown that he is not a warmonger, does not want a war with Iran, and really wants to get as many US troops out of the Middle East as is politically possible. If this resolution ever becomes a bill passed by the entire Congress that lands on his desk, Trump to uphold his constitutional duties will veto the measure. What this all amounts to is another liberal Democrat effort to harass Trump, and those eight Republican Senators fell for that, believing that they were also protecting themselves from some left wing constituency groups. Pretty sad as the Democrat Senators would never dared to do that to Barack Obama.

The ignorance of our history and laws is surely reflected by some of the posts on this site. The President does not have the Constitutional authority to wage war without a Declaration of War passed by the Congress. Article 1 sec. 8 gives authority to declare war to Congress. Those who voted in favor, did so constitutionally.

#36, President Trump has no desire to wage war against Iran. Taking out a terrorist who is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans just doesn't fit that bill.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee raised more than $10 million in January, besting its Democratic counterpart as the Senate was adjudicating two articles of impeachment against President Trump.The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee raised $8.5 million in the first month of the election year, finishing the period with $19.75 million in cash on hand. The NRSC's haul stemmed from robust online fundraising from grassroots donors that surpassed what the committee accumulated digitally during the first five months of 2018. The Senate GOP campaign arm had its best January ever and closed the month with a $25.2 million war chest to spend on the fall campaign.
