House Repeals 2002 Bill to Use Military Force in Iraq

The House passed a resolution today to repeal the authorization of military force in Iraq. The vote was 268-161, with 49 Republicans voting for the resolution and one Democrat against it. Once passed in the Senate and signed by President Biden, the war in Iraq will effectively be over. 


Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) is the sponsor of this legislation and the only member of the House to oppose the Authorization for Use of Military Force in 2001 following the September 11th terror attacks. 

Lee noted that this brings the country "one step closer to ending forever wars."

Elaine Luria (D-VA) was the only Democrat who voted against the bill.

Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL) opposed the bill, saying on the House floor that "this is a bad deal for our national security and the safety of American service members overseas."

Michael McCaul (R-TX) had similar thoughts.

Mitch McConnell also reacted, saying the repeal won't end the threat of terrorism.

Still, the outcome was welcomed by those on both sides of the aisle.
