Boxer: Members of Congress Wanting War Resolution Seeking Own Self-Importance

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) criticized her congressional colleagues for wanting to make the focus all about the constitutional requirement Congress votes the Untied States into a war.

Instead, Boxer mocked her fellow lawmakers for not wanting to cede the their constitutional duty to a 13-year-old resolution meant to go after al Qaeda after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. 

Boxer said, “I just wonder sometimes about my friends in the Congress who say, ‘Look at me, look at me, I’m more important, and let’s, you know, focus it back on the Congress.’ We have a war resolution that talks about going after terrorists, we are working on another one. And in the meantime, the president has set forth a strategy.”
