Is President Obama Violating the War Powers Act? [POLL]

Members of Congress are at odds with President Obama over Libya. Yesterday, we told you about Speaker John Boehner’s letter to the President that basically told Obama that he needed to get Congressional approval or else. Last night the White House fired back. According to the New York Times:

In a 38-page report sent to lawmakers describing and defending the NATO-led operation, the White House said the mission was prying loose Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s grip on power.

In contending that the limited American role did not oblige the administration to ask for authorization under the War Powers Resolution, the report asserted that “U.S. operations do not involve sustained fighting or active exchanges of fire with hostile forces, nor do they involve U.S. ground troops.” Still, the White House acknowledged, the operation has cost the Pentagon $716 million in its first two months and will have cost $1.1 billion by September at the current scale of operations.

So what do you think about the battle that is happening between the White House and members of Congress? Let us know and vote in today’s LFN Poll of the Day.
