Instead of making fools of themselves over ObamaDon'tCare and premature tax cuts, the US House of Representatives and Senate need to step up and either declare war on Syria or cut off the President's war making powers:
On the verge of driving the Islamic State out of Mosul, once Iraq’s second-largest city, the United States and its allies are beginning a push to recapture Raqqa, the Syrian city that is the de facto capital of the self-declared caliphate.
Hundreds of Syrian rebels and their American military advisers, backed by American artillery and attack helicopters, have started shutting down the western approaches to the city. There is talk of reinforcing the roughly 900 American troops who are now in the country. Instead of conducting airstrikes and relying on Syrian and Kurdish forces for ground operations, as they have done for months, the Americans are now involved with tanks and troops, a more direct and far riskier role.
But as the American military is doing its job, Congress is refusing to do its duty. Nearly three years into the war against ISIS, lawmakers have ducked their constitutional responsibility for making war by not passing legislation authorizing the anti-ISIS fight.

I agree with this op-ed 100%. Congress should have stopped Obama ad-Dajjal long ago, and it's time for them to stop Trump, too.
NO PRESIDENT SHOULD HAVE UNITARY WAR POWERS.
And while we're at it, let's throttle Senators McCain and Graham, too. We don't need a war with Russia, either.
