WALORSKI STATEMENT ON THE PRESIDENT’S COMMENTS ON SYRIA
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Jackie Walorski, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement in response to the president’s call for a congressional vote to authorize military action in Syria:
“The American people deserve the opportunity to have their voices heard in Congress regarding the situation in Syria, and I respect the President’s decision to seek a congressional vote concerning future military action.
“I urge Congress to return to Washington immediately so that President Obama can make the case to lawmakers and the American people as to how military action could fulfill a comprehensive strategy to protect our national interests and shield our allies.
“The president’s red line was already crossed, yet it still remains unclear how his recent consideration for a ‘limited, narrow act’ will deter the Assad regime, and I look forward to hearing the Administration’s specific plan in the coming days.”
