BS: House approves Obama request for Syria in broad bipartisan vote

How much more worthless can the Republicans get? I didn't even see how much we authorized.

ISIS strike deal with moderate Syrian rebels


The House overwhelmingly voted Wednesday to grant President Obama authority to train and arm moderate (? They chop off less heads or ?) Syrian rebels waging war against Islamic extremists.

Despite vocal opposition from both war-weary liberals and defense hawks who feel the Syria plan should include more robust steps, majorities in both conferences voted 273-156 to back Obama’s plan to give military aid to vetted members of the Free Syrian Army.

The “yes” vote was made up of 159 Republicans and 114 Democrats; opposition was just as bipartisan, with 85 Democrats and 71 Republicans voting no. The Syria language was considered as an amendment to a stopgap funding bill to avert a government shutdown on Oct. 1.

  1. ( - House Speaker John Boehner (R.-Ohio) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) joined forces early Wednesday evening as the House passed a continuing resolution that will fund the government after the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30, and that will permit funding for Planned Parenthood (the nation's largest abortion provider), the entirety of Obamacare, and an amendment requested by President Barack Obama "to train and equip appropriately vetted elements of the Syrian opposition."

    “Hurray for Washington” everything is business as usual. If anyone still thinks, republicans are different from democrats after this. Republicans are just as happy to drop the yoke of tyranny around your neck, as are the democrats. To anyone paying attention voting either democrat or republican changes nothing they are the same creature.
