Yes, let's repeal the AUMFs.

But @POTUS didn't cite any AUMF for his Syria strikes.

He claims the Constitution permits strikes against any group, anywhere, that he says threatens US troops.

We must oppose his claims that "self defense" includes offensive retaliatory strikes. https://t.co/11ufPkqVt3

There is nowhere — I repeat, NOWHERE — in the United States where a full-time worker being paid the federal minimum wage of $7.25 can make ends meet. That is a disgrace. It is far past time that we raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and give millions of workers a raise.

"Instead of them controlling the fascists, the fascists ended up controlling them. And we’re seeing the whole attack and the dissolution of the Republican party, because they made the same mistake that ordinary Germans made in the 1930s, where they thought that they can control the fascists and the fascists ended up controlling the country. And this is what we’re, I think, at the risk of seeing repeated." — Associate professor Loretta J. Ross on the Republican party and the future of the nation
