Senate Republicans are set to vote for two resolutions this week, one to curtail the US’s involvement in Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen and two, blocking Trump’s emergency declaration on the wall. The border resolution is likely to pass with 60+ votes. This will lead to Trump’s first vetoes of his administration. Fantastic. It’s about time Congress stopped rolling over and ceding all its power and authority to the executive and started re-asserting its Constitutional role. Congress declares wars and spends the money. Full stop. They need to pass a third resolution clawing back the extra-constitutional trade powers it previously extended to the executive. If we’re going to have imbeciles and lunatics like Trump and whoever the Dem’s Progressive Caucus nominates for 2020 as presidents for the foreseeable future, executive powers need to be drastically curtailed.
