Last month I participated in a panel discussion at the “Future of War Powers” conference, co-hosted by the Committee for Responsible Foreign Policy and the American Conservative.

Many of my colleagues in Congress don’t want to go on the record and vote on matters of war. At this panel discussion, I explained how I often work across the aisle with Democrats to demand a debate and vote regarding our military’s involvement in foreign conflicts. For example, I am currently the only Republican cosponsor of a bill that would require congressional authorization for any military action in Venezuela (H.R. 1004).

I also discussed the ongoing effort to force a vote regarding whether the United States should be involved in Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen. Last Congress, I worked with a bipartisan coalition in the House to request a vote on our participation in this tragic conflict, but our efforts were repeatedly thwarted by House Leadership. Our coalition did not give up, however, and this Congress both the House and Senate have already voted to end U.S. military support for this war.
