Rand Paul: ‘Constitution Requires’ Congressional Authorization for Obama to Attack ISIS

(Breitbart) – Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said in a statement Tuesday that he supports military actions against ISIS—like the airstrikes President Obama just launched—but that the Constitution requires Obama to obtain congressional approval for such action.

“I support military action against ISIS but continue to believe the Constitution requires the President to receive Congressional authorization,” Paul said in a statement provided to Breitbart News.

President Obama did not seek congressional authorization for the strikes, which launched late Monday evening, a fact especially significant since he had sought — and obtained — authorization to arm Syrian rebels. Fox News’ Wendell Goler reported that in addition to the Middle East nations already involved in the strikes, Obama is heading to the United Nations on Tuesday to seek to add to the coalition.

Late Monday evening, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI)—a libertarian-leaning conservative congressman—criticized President Obama for not seeking congressional authorization for these strikes and congressional leaders like Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for not fighting for Obama to seek congressional authorization.

“It’s irresponsible & immoral that instead of debating & voting on war, congressional leaders chose to recess Congress for nearly two months,” Amash said via Twitter...(MORE)

GOP: Obamacare ‘Bending Over Backwards’ for Illegals

(Washington Times) – The Obama administration has dragged its feet on revoking Obamacare coverage for people who can’t prove U.S. citizenship or legal residency, allowing some of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. to continue enjoying taxpayer-funded benefits, a Republican senator charged Monday.

“The Obama administration is bending over backwards to give Obamacare to illegal immigrants but won’t protect hardworking American citizens who are losing their health care coverage,” said Sen. David Vitter, Louisiana Republican and an outspoken critic of President Obama’s health care law.

“The Obama administration has been granting deadline extensions, making excuses and turning a blind eye to falsified documents by illegal immigrants,” he said. “Enough is enough, and they need to provide answers to why they think illegal immigrants should be eligible for Obamacare.”

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which oversees the health care program, disputed Mr. Vitter’s claims.

The Obamacare law specifically excluded illegal immigrants. But the administration’s effort to verify immigration status of applicants for the law’s state-based health insurance exchanges has lasted well beyond the March 31 deadline to sign up for coverage...(MORE)
