Rep. Burgess Joins America’s Newsroom: “The actions taken by the administration in regards to General Soleimani were absolutely appropriate and correct.”
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), member of the House Rules Committee and Republican Leader of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health joined Fox News’ America’s Newsroom this morning to discuss the pending House vote on the War Powers Resolution.
Time to pass a new AUMF: “Most of us were not here when those authorizations were passed, and they seem to continue in perpetuity. Now if that’s a problem, then that’s a problem that Congress should fix. We shouldn’t be quarreling with the President about that. That’s our obligation to fix.”:
History could repeat itself: “When I think back to the mid-1990’s, I’m just a regular guy. Clinton apparently had the opportunity to take out Bin Laden, and we learned later that he didn’t. Look at the consequences we suffered because the administration faltered. We have an administration who is willing to take decisive action, make the consequences, minimize the consequences, but take decisive action when it’s required. You got to respect that.”
