I support H.R. 383: War Powers Reform Act because our US National Guards can not protect and defend Americans in the US from the terrorist who are already here if they are over seas.. Bringing them home, is the only logical thing to do, instead of deploring them elsewhere over seas.

I support H.R. 383: War Powers Reform Act because as it currently stands, there is no means short of impeachment to enforce the War Powers Act and without an overwhelming majority of the party opposite the President, impeachment within our highly partisan Congress is unlikely. I am in the military and I strongly believe in the system of checks and balances each branch of government is supposed to have over the other. I also know that money is the one language understood by all government entities. Amending this act to restrict money is the only way to feasibly enforce it.

I support H.R. 383: War Powers Reform Act because...a president should never be able to go into any conflict without getting proper approval from congress. Any bills that are introduced stating otherwise should automatically be aired on the news (prime time) and the people should be informed by way of amber alert.

I support H.R. 383 ("To amend the War Powers Resolution to limit the use of funds for introduction of") because...We spend too much money sending our troops into every conflict we can find. It's time to control the military spending and focus on the domestic issues.

Bill Summary

<br /> 1/23/2013--Introduced.<br /> War Powers Reform Act - Amends the War Powers Resolution to direct the President in every possible instance to submit to Congress before introducing U.S. Armed Forces into hostilities or situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated a written report setting forth the estimated scope and duration of the hostilities or involvement. Directs the President, in the absence of a declaration of war or a specific statutory authorization (currently, only in the absence of a declaration of war), to submit a written report to Congress within 48 hours when the Armed Forces are introduced into hostilities or foreign nations under specified circumstances and requires that such report include the circumstances necessitating the introduction, the constitutional and legislative authority under which such introduction took place, and the estimated scope and duration of the hostilities or involvement. Repeals an existing framework under which the President is required to terminate, within 60 days, subject to a possible 30-day extension, any use of Armed Forces with respect to which the President has submitted (or is required to submit) a report concerning the introduction of Armed Forces into hostilities in the absence of a declaration of war, unless: (1) Congress declares war or enacts specific authorization, (2) extends the 60-day period, or (3) is physically unable to meet as a result of an armed attack upon the United States. Strikes provisions concerning congressional action to remove Armed Forces engaged in hostilities without a declaration of war or specific statutory authorization. Replaces such framework with a process that prohibits funds available for the Armed Forces from being obligated or expended for introducing the Armed Forces into hostilities, or into situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated, in the absence of: (1) a declaration of war; (2) specific statutory authorization; or (3) a national emergency created by an attack or imminent threat of attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or the Armed Forces. <br />
