As is well known by now, I was the lone vote on September 14, 2001 against Congress' approval of the Authorization for Use of Military Force.
The concern, as the New York Times stated today in an editorial, was "that it could become the basis for a perpetual, ever-expanding war that undermined the traditional constraints on government power."
It has become a blank check for war and must be repealed. My bill to repeal AUMF is HR 198. Please sign as a citizen co-signer here.
