Senate votes 90-10 to let Obama ignore Constitution on war powers.


The United States senate voted 90-10 against holding Obama accountable to the Constitutional rules for declaring war.

Barack Obama had pledged to abide by constitutional war powers during his president campaign, but broke that promise when he unilaterally started a war with Libya without any backing from Congress. Obama stated “the President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”

All Democrats voted against the resolution. Only ten Republicans voted for it.

Jim DeMint, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe, Ron Johnson, Pat Toomey, Jerry Moran, John Ensign, and Jeff Sessions voted for it.
