Bernie Sanders And Mike Lee Gang Up On Biden – They Want To Take Away Joe’s Overreaching War Powers

What’s Happening:

Do lawmakers in Washington really trust Joe Biden? Not if you pay attention to this story.

Very rarely do men like Bernie Sanders—a radical socialist—and Mike Lee—an outspoken conservative—see eye to eye.

But in a shocking turn of events, both men support a bill. This bill is aimed right at Joe Biden.

And it seeks to strip him of significant power.

From IJR:

The so-called National Security Powers Act represents a rare show of bipartisanship in the Senate, where it has attracted the backing of Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah… and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats…

“Before it’s too late, Congress needs to reclaim its rightful role as co-equal branch on matters of war and national security,” Murphy said, Politico reported.

Republican Mike Lee and “Democratic socialist” Bernie Sanders are joining forces to support a new bill that would strip Joe Biden of his war powers.

This isn’t the first time congressmen have sought to pull back some of the military power granted to presidents.

In almost every administration, we see lawmakers from a rival party try to strip the war powers from a sitting president. (Democrats tried this, of course, when Trump was in office.)

But this might be the first time two very different lawmakers were willing to put aside political differences to support this kind of bill.

That should tell you just how worried Congress is that Joe Biden has access to nuclear weapons.

We’ve all seen, many times, signs that Joe Biden struggles with even basic tasks. Many Americans worry that the man is not fit to lead. Some even suspect other people are really calling the shots in the White House.

It seems these senators are worried about that, too. Why else would they be trying to put forward this kind of bill?

We’ll have to see if it gains traction in the rest of Congress.

Do you think Biden should be trusted as Commander-In-Chief?

Key Takeaways:

  • Republican Mike Lee and Socialist Bernie Sanders teamed up to support a bill.
  • This bill would strip Joe Biden of his war powers, restoring them to Congress.
  • This comes as many Americans worry about Biden’s fitness to lead.
