Paul was supported by Tim Kaine and Elizabeth Warren.
But the amendment was opposed by both party leaderships (which should tell some something...) and warmongers like McCain.
This is a sad day for the USA. Nobody can stop Bomber Trump bombing, and the Pentagon is about to get an annual budget of $700 billion. That's enough to buy everyone on the planet fish and chips twenty times!
The Senate has rejected a measure from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to sunset two war bills and force a debate on what war powers President Trump should have.
Senators voted 61-36 Wednesday to table an amendment from the Kentucky Republican to get rid of the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for the Use of Military Force (AUMF).
Paul wanted to attach a six-month sunset of the two war bills to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that is moving through the Senate. The 2001 AUMF was approved the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, while the 2002 AUMF authorized the Iraq War.
Paul warned that voting against his resolution was voting to let the president do "whatever he wants."
