#1 Did you pass a AUMF to make any of the Syrian military adventure action legal?

#3 Conservative Tree House has an article on it passing and calls for a "Stand" against the GOPs who supported the bill. Two takeaways:

1. They want to punish GOPers like Scalise and Crenshaw who legitimately think bailing out was a bad idea. In other words, don't think, don't have opinions, but follow the Prez/Party regardless. Don't represent the people, represent the Party...gee who does that sound like?

2. Cummings is listed as "did not vote". Strange, being dead hasn't stopped Donks from voting in the past.

#5 The House has 197 Pubs, 234 Dems, 1 Ind., and 3 vacancies.

65% of the Pubs voted in favor of this legislation. ~ 31% Pubs voted against. Doesn't appear that any Dems voted against this legislation.

Looks like the Dems, as usual, voted as a block, 225 in favor. The remainder of votes can be accounted for by those voting "present" (4) and those not voting (14), and vacancies.

#6 If you want to pick some GOPers to go after, ID the 10 Trunk senators who voted to overturn Trump's veto of the "no wall" bill.
