The Senate introduced an initiative to limit the powers of the US President in the use of force

We are talking about another attempt by lawmakers to cancel the initiatives adopted by Congress after a series of terrorist attacks in the United States in September 2001.

US senators from both parties on Wednesday introduced a bill limiting the US president’s powers in the use of military force.

We are talking about another attempt by lawmakers to cancel the initiatives adopted by Congress after a series of terrorist attacks in the United States in September 2001. They allow the head of state to use military force without the consent of the legislators. Before this, similar attempts by some congressmen and senators did not receive adequate support from the entire Congress.

The new initiative authors were the same party member of the current president Tim Kaine (Democrat from Virginia) and Todd Young (Republican from Indiana). They opposed the current legislation, which, in their opinion, allows the United States to conduct “endless wars” in the Middle East for almost two decades.

“Last week’s airstrikes in Syria show that the executive branch, regardless of party, will continue to expand its military powers,” Kaine said.
