Rand Paul and NDAA

The National Defense Authorization Act

The Senate voted this week on an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which would require a report on military planning for a no-fly zone over Syria. Congress should not be encouraging the military toward another conflict in the Middle East or to require the military to disclose its detailed war plans. There are many unknowns that we need to be asking before we involve our nation in a civil war in Syria.

Moments before the vote, I took to the Senate floor to speak out against the amendment. Click HERE or below to watch a video of my floor speech.

Despite my arguments against this amendment, it passed 92-6.
