‘Constitution requires that Congress be consulted on matters of war’

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Sen. Rand Paul introduced a sense of the Senate resolution to bill S.493, which quotes President Obama’s own words as a candidate in 2007 where he stated that: “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.” The measure aims to put the Senate on record affirming Congress as the body with Constitutional authority on matters of war.
