Two Republicans joined two anti-war Democrats on legislation to make it illegal for President Obama's to arm the Syrian rebels
.


Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) partnered with Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Tom Udall (D-N.M.) on the bill that would bar the Obama administration from “supporting, directly or indirectly, military or paramilitary operations in Syria.” The bill has an exemption for “non-lethal humanitarian assistance.”
“We need to place a check on the President’s unilateral decision to arm the rebels, while still preserving humanitarian aid and assistance to the Syrian people, and that is why I’m introducing this bill,” Udall said in a statement announcing the legislation.

“Bottom line: We should not get involved in another civil war in the Middle East without a clear national security interest.”

The title is misleading, it makes it seem like there are more than 4 people backing it...
Either way that is saddening that the bill won't get through, especially since it could save money which by the way, I feel is the more pressing issue. Washington Idiots.
