WASHINGTON, D.C. - Florida's delegates in Washington are weighing in on President Obama seeking the approval of Congress for military action in Syria.
Senator Bill Nelson says: “I support the President's decision. But as far as I'm concerned, we should strike in Syria today. The use of chemical weapons was inhumane, and those responsible should be forced to suffer the consequences."
Senator Marco Rubio had a differing opinion: “The United States should only engage militarily when it is pursuing a clear and attainable national security goal. Military action taken simply to send a message or save face does not meet that standard."
Representative Trey Radel says: “The administration needs to make its case, putting America first. They will also need to answer questions on the national security threat facing America, how we prevent our troops from getting dragged into a civil war and how we are going to prevent the loss of American lives."
Congress is expected back in Washington on September 9th.
