Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-ID) called for an open debate and a public vote before pursuing further U.S. military engagement against the Islamic State (ISIS). With Congress set to return to Washington next week, Rep. Labrador issued the following statement: “The acts committed by ISIS are abhorrent and should be condemned by all civilized people. Under our Constitution, the president needs congressional authorization to engage in war. As members of Congress, we must be more than a rubber stamp for the president’s military actions. Before we commit additional U.S. assets and lives to this fight, Americans deserve an open debate and public vote/News Release, Raul Labrador's Office. More here.
Question: Do you agree with Congressman Raul Labrador that President Obama should seek an open debate/public vote before pursuing further military involvement against ISIS?
