Paul's proposal was offered as an amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act, but senators voted 61-36 to table the legislation, a move that effectively kills it without an up-or-down vote on the Senate floor.

"Do your job, this is your constitutional role," Paul said.
"Let them [war authorizations] expire and, over the next six months, let's debate whether we should be at war and where."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
May the blood of our soldiers and that of all the innocent people we kill daily in UN-Constitutional and immoral foreign wars and interventions be on the hands of bastards like Lyndsey Graham and the other 60 senators who voted to keep the wars going.

This is NOT about defending America. It is ONLY about defending the profiteers of wars including central bankers and the military industrial complex meaning weapons makers and a bloated military which is mostly just a national welfare program.

Paul did not get a straight up or down vote on his amendment.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., moved to set aside the amendment without actually voting on Paul’s effort.

Moments later, the Senate did just that, scrapping Paul’s gambit 60-36.

Most Democrats voted against killing Paul’s amendment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Senator Paul and fellow GOP Senators Mike Lee, R-Utah and Dean Heller, R-Nevada were the only republicans who voted to support the amendment.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
EFF Bob Corker - the bastard who moved to kill this amendment.

Obviously Corker cares NOT for the safety of American military members and fully supports our continual killing of foreigners in the region.
