WASHINGTON (CNN) - Lawyers within the Obama administration disagreed with the president's decision that U.S. participation in the NATO-led Libyan military mission doesn't come under the War Powers Resolution, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Monday.
President Barack Obama is in a stand-off with House Speaker John Boehner over the issue, and Congress might vote on measures to restrict funding for the mission this week to protest what Boehner says is Obama's violation of the war powers law.
What is wrong with this country?
We relitegate the same stuff [Roe-vs-Wade, Balanced Budget Ammendment, or the WarPowersAct] It`s no wonder we can`t achieve anything. And yet, we continue to pay members of Congress large sums of money decade after decade.
