Here is the list of Republicans who voted with Dems to prevent Trump from killing any more Iranian terrorists without their permission (Spoiler, no surprises on here): Sens. Mike Lee (Utah), Rand Paul (Ky.), Susan Collins (Maine), Todd Young (Ind.), Jerry Moran (Kan.), Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Bill Cassidy (La.), and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska).
Explain that to the families of troops killed by this dead rat Iranian terrorist leader. Perhaps American troops should just wait on being shielded from terrorism until a resolution makes its way through congress, leaking as it goes!
In a nutshell, these eight turncoats voted with ALL of the Democrats to tie the Commander in Chief’s hands via a War Powers Resolution Act specifically limiting Trump’s actions against Iran.

We are doing very well with Iran and this is not the time to show weakness … If my hands were tied, Iran would have a field day. Sends a very bad signal. The Democrats are only doing this as an attempt to embarrass the Republican Party. Don’t let it happen!”
Fortunately, we have a president with balls who will veto this nonsense. There is a difference between declaring war on a nation and conducting limited military operations against said nation, but these terrorist-kissing trolls knew that when they voted against our military’s safety
