Today, I voted to repeal the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), the legislation that licensed much of the United States’ military engagement in the Middle East for the last 20 years. This blank check resolution authorized the executive branch to conduct broad military operations, and Congress has disregarded its Constitutional oversight powers. Congress' action to repeal the outdated 2002 AUMF today brings Congress one important step closer to restoring its check on Executive fiat.
