U.S. House votes overwhelmingly for say on Obama's Iraq decisions

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks about the economy while at Los Angeles Trade Technical College in CaliforniaThe U.S. House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly on Friday for a resolution that would bar President Barack Obama from sending U.S. troops for any “sustained combat role” in Iraq without congressional authorization. The House adopted the resolution by a vote of 370-40, reflecting the strong desire by both Republicans and Democrats in the chamber that the White House not act in Iraq without Congress’ backing, although it was a largely symbolic vote. To be enacted, the measure would require backing by the U.S. Senate, which is not expected, and even then it would not have the force of law. It was introduced by Massachusetts Democratic Representative Jim McGovern, California Democrat Barbara Lee and Republican Walter Jones of North Carolina.
