The List of Senators Who Voted For and Against Funding of Current US Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan


This is how the vote went down on Senator Rand Paul's 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to sunset the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for Use of Military Force. This would repeal the authorization for use of force in Iraq and Afghanistan.

  1. Huh? Is it too early for me or are the yes'a and nay's backwards?

    1. The vote was to table the Rand Paul Amendment, yea or nay.
      On the Motion to Table S.Amdt. 871 to S.Amdt. 1003 to H.R. 2810 (National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018)

  2. These lists bother me a bit. Who is sincere? A vote this lopsided ensures political posturing without conviction. No doubt many democrats want the war but are able to be portrayed as "anti". What if each of these glorified car salesmen had to cast the deciding vote?

    I still maintain that a new constitutional amendment be passed, where 30% of the house, senate, federal judiciary, white house staff, and executive cabinet be immediately inducted into the armed forces as PFCs upon the initiation of any act of foreign aggression - on a 6 month rotating basis with no exemptions allowed. That would add some sincerity to the proceedings.
