Not surprised. The thing most despised by a libertarian is a monarchy.

It passed to halt it, then was immediately vetoed.
Not yet. A Tweet is not a veto.

But Trump will likely veto the resolution soon.

Yeah... but Congress is an oppressive oligarchy, so I think he loses sight of the big picture on this one.

Mike Lee is a RINO ??? Probably one of the most conservative in the US Senate. The term RINO has just jumped the shark.

Yeah? Too bad. So sad.

All in all, it's just another brick in the wall.

What a fraud this dude is


Paul’s voting record is clear evidence that he is anything BUT a fraud. You may not agree with him, but he’s not faking it.

The interesting issue is a vote on veto. Assume for the sake of argument that enough Senators indicate a willingness to override the veto. (Yes, unlikely).

Does McConnell prevent a vote, or does he let the vote happen?


Why are we assuming that Trump can veto a resolution? He can veto a law, but why would he have veto power over a resolution?

Looks like Trump can veto. Interesting to give veto power over a resolution about overreach of presidential power, but that’s how it is.

It has always been a meaningless term. The GOP is a coalition, and its various groups have always disagreed on specific issues.

None of them were actual emergencies. In a perfect world, Senators or Congressmen would have sought a resolution to void them, but we do not live in a perfect world. Each Obama NEA Declaration dealt with a reasonably-uncontroversial issue, and politicians do not make waves in opposition to uncontroversial actions.
