The bipartisan Senate group proposed a bill to deprive Mr. Biden of his war power

On Wednesday, a group of bipartisan senators – led by Todd Young (Republican) and Democrat Tim Kaine introduced a bill to refute President Biden’s war power,

The move follows President Biden’s recent airstrikes in eastern Syria, which were carried out without congressional approval. The decision to launch the attack came after the bombing of an Iraqi military base, where US troops were stationed. The missile attack left a civilian contractor dead and nine others injured. One of the injured was an American soldier.

This bill would repeal authorizations for 1991 and 2002 to use military force in the Middle East. These proxies paved the way for a protracted military conflict in Iraq. The proposition of the bill shows Democrats and Republicans both calling for an end to the “war forever” in the Middle East.

Congress has given up much of its constitutional authority to declare war. The presidents of both parties used the old proxies of 1991 and 2002 to regulate US military actions.

Sen. Kaine, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement “Last week’s airstrikes in Syria showed that the executive, regardless of party, will continue to increase power. your war. Congress has the responsibility not only to vote to allow new military action, but to deregulate old [military] mandates that are no longer needed. “

Also proposing this bill also includes Democratic TNS Chris Coons (state of Delaware),
Republican Senator Chuck Grassley (Iowa),
Republican Senator Mike Lee (Utah) and
Democratic Senator Tammy Duckworth (Illinois).

Mr. Kaine previously expressed disappointment at the Biden administration’s decision for not informing Congress about the airstrike in Syria.

“The American people deserve to hear the Administration’s rationale for these airstrikes and their legitimate justification for acting without Congress,” Kaine said. “Offensive military action without the approval of Congress is not a special case of absence [specified] in the constitution. Congress must be fully informed of this issue urgently. “
