"In addition to Lee, 14 other GOP senators have thrown their support behind the bill, including Chuck Grassley of Iowa; Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Mitt Romney of Utah; Ted Cruz of Texas; Joni Ernst of Iowa; Roy Blunt of Missouri; Jerry Moran of Kansas; Lamar Alexander of Tennessee; Roger Wicker of Mississippi; Ben Sasse of Nebraska; Ron Johnson of Wisconsin; Rob Portman of Ohio; Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania; and Todd Young of Indiana.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested on Tuesday that he was open to the idea of making changes to presidential national emergency powers.
“We’re looking at some ways to revisit the law. There’s a lot of discomfort with the law,” McConnell told reporters. “Was it too broad back in the '70s when it was passed? So yeah, we’re discussing altering that.”
Asked directly if he would back Lee’s bill, McConnell said that he “may well” support it."
Something good to come out of this Presidency, perhaps.
With 15 GOP Senators signing on, they’re at veto-proof numbers aren’t they?
Assuming they’ll follow through and continue pushing it after Trump vetoes.
