President Barack Obama this weekend said he will let the U.S. congress decide on whether to attack Syria after an alleged chemical weapons attack by Syrian President Bashar Assad that isreported to have killed more than 1,400 people and violated international rules of war.
As Americans are "weary of war," the president said in his Saturday address to the public that putting the decision in the hands of the people's representatives was more in line with the country's democratic ideals.
"I know that the country will be stronger if we take this course, and our actions will be even more effective," he said.
Schneider earlier this month said he believes the Assad regime used chemical weapons on its own people.
Schneider made it clear he is opposed to American “boots on the ground” but considers the use of weapons of mass destruction like chemical arms a different matter. He feels the United States must send a message to the world.So as Congressional committees grill Secretary of State John Kerry and Congress prepares to vote on whether or not to strike Syria, how do you think your Congressman, Rep. Brad Schneider, should vote?
