On Thursday, the House of Representatives voted 268 to 161 to repeal the 2002 authorization for use of military force in Iraq.

As with the 2001 AUMF passed after the attacks of Sept. 11, the 2002 AUMF wrongly cedes war-making powers to the executive branch while letting Congress shirk its constitutional authority. Both AUMFs should be repealed once and for all. The U.S. Constitution is clear. Article I, Sectio...

Court again leaves Affordable Care Act in place
