Duckworth Reacts Strongly to War Powers Vote

Both of Illinois Senators are standing up against the President having powers to declare war against Iran. Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth both voted in support of a measure that makes it clear only Congress can declare war or authorize specific hostilities against a country. Duckworth says weeks ago when the President Trump allowed for an attack on Iran he overstepped his authority to wage war.

The 55 – 45 vote comes as the President is likely to veto the bill.
