Mr. Speaker, in a short time, the House will have an opportunity to reclaim our constitutional authority on matters of war and peace by voting to stop the use of funds for the war in Libya.
An agreement has been reached through work that Mr. Amash and I have done to create a bipartisan amendment which states: None of the funds made available by this act may be used for the use of military force against Libya.
The Amash-Kucinich amendment is cosponsored by a growing group of bipartisan activists, including, Representatives Ron Paul, Lynn Woolsey, Walter Jones, John Conyers, Dan Burton, Barbara Lee, Ted Poe, and Pete Stark.
This could well be an historic moment where a bipartisan coalition rallies this Congress to defend the Constitution and to reset the balance that has been upset by the administration's claiming the war power.
Vote to end to the war in Libya. Support the bipartisan Amash-Kucinich amendment.
