Wisconsin Democratic Party Backs Repealing Authorization to Use Military Force
This resolution was passed. Thanks to Jim Carpenter.
WHEREAS, H.R. 2859, Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force, has been introduced by Barbara Lee of California with 18 co-sponsors; and,
WHEREAS, H.R. 2859 states that the Authorization for Use of Military Force (P.L. 107-40) has been used to justify an open-ended authorization for the use of military force and such an interpretation is inconsistent with the authority of Congress to declare war;
THEREFORE, RESOLVED, the DPW supports H.R. 2859 for the purpose of ending U.S. military force, including drone killings, in countries that Congress has not declared war upon.
