This is good but the time to pull Trump’s strings was accepting the NDAA amendments and using that as a bargaining chip to deny Trump this unrestricted power - it is called leverage. Now they are trying to close the barn door, but the horse is gone and whether approved or not without Republican support in the Senate it will never pass with enough support to override a Trump veto. Thanks to Pelosi and Schumer for continued mismanagement and assisting Trump.

And if there was new legislation that passed, it doesn’t mean they wouldn’t vote for war at a later date anyway.

Good point. It’s horrible that nowadays we must be pessimistic about most political matters.

Mitch should have an “out box” that contains the unattended to bills from the House. When the stack reaches a certain height, enough bills must be brought up to keep the pile below the predetermined level.
Then the REAL portion of the do nothing congress can be held accountable.

No More Presidential Wars resolution
