According to NBC News the Senate has voted down, Sen. Rand Paul's effort to force Congress to pass a new law, that would have giving the U.S. authority to wage war, against ISIS and other combat threats overseas. Before the vote, Paul made his appeal saying, “for the first time in 15 years, we are debating the congressional role in the declaration of war." He went on to say : "we have fought the longest war in U.S. history under an original authorization to go after the people that attacked us on 9/11." The 1973 War Powers Act requires the president have congressional approval to keep U.S. troops deployed in combat for more than 90 days.
