Not A Congress That Just Gives The President What He Wants

I think this is the first step in sending the president a loud message that this immoral war that we’re engaged in has to change direction, and that the escalation of the war is not the way to go. I believe that it showed, and the members understood and the public understands, that this Congress is not going to be a Congress that just gives the president anything and everything that he wants, that we’re going to do our job, and our job means that we’re going to conduct oversight, we’re going to have hearings, and we’re going to have some votes on the floor asking questions in regards to the policy of the executive. We are a coequal branch of government and we’re going to exercise that, and we’re going to listen to the voice and the will of the American people and our own common sense, because we understand that the camera of history is rolling, and we’ve got to make sure that history records us on the right side.
