Kucinich noted that recently, President Obama authorized military action in Libya by citing authorization from the United Nations Security Council. "That is not a substitute for a Congressional declaration of war or authorization for the use of military force and it is in clear subversion of the Constitution," Kucinich's statement said.
"After 10 years and trillions of dollars spent waging wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is clear that we cannot afford to further commit our already overcommitted military," he said. "The war in Libya cost the United States $1 billion."
Kucinich's bill is H.R. 6290.
