Senate declines to take up 2007 Obama statement on congressional authorization for attack
The Senate declined on Tuesday to take up a resolution that would have affirmed a 2007 statement by then-Sen. Barack Obama that a president must gain Congress’s permission before authorizing a military attack. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who introduced the measure as an amendment to the Small Business Administration (SBA) authorization bill, wanted his colleagues to go on the record in support of, or opposition to, Obama’s remarks.
