President Joe Biden can’t believe it — he could be removed and even some Democrats agree. DC has been rocked by this bombshell news.
“A bipartisan group of U.S. Senators — led by Todd Young (R-IN) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) — introduced legislation Wednesday that would strip President Joe Biden of war powers,” reported Breitbart News.
This would be accomplished “by repealing both the 1991 and 2002 authorizations for the use of military force (AUMF) in the Middle East,” effectively removing Biden’s ability to act in the region without congressional approval.
The announcement from Young and Kaine comes as Biden has involved the United States in Syria’s civil war, launching airstrikes against the Assad regime. By contrast, Trump ended U.S. involvement in that no-win scenario.
The AUMFs should have been repealed years ago — with some arguing that they should’ve been enacted in the first place. Unfortunately, they are too open-ended and allow the president to wage war unilaterally.
This is not how the Constitution was designed. The framers of the Constitution rightfully concluded that the executive branch was most prone to war, so they vested the question of war with Congress. Biden needs to be put in check.
