Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) signaled on Tuesday that he is open to changing the president’s national emergency powers as support grows within the GOP caucus for amending the National Emergencies Act.

“We’re looking at some ways to revisit the law. There’s a lot of discomfort with the law. … Was it too broad back in the ’70s when it was passed? So yeah, we’re discussing altering that,” McConnell told reporters during a weekly press conference.

The article goes on to state the following:

A growing number of Republican senators have expressed interest in amending the National Emergencies Act to make it easier for Congress to terminate a national emergency.

The discussion is focused on future national emergencies but comes days before the Senate will vote on a House-passed resolution of disapproval blocking Trump’s emergency declaration at the border.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) is expected to introduce legislation that would require Congress to vote to approve future national emergency declarations within 30 days before they automatically expire.

    I think it is very apparent that even the Republican members are not interested in protecting our country at the border. They have refused to support our duly elected President. Now we have Rubio who is in support to abolish our second amendment and he also wants open borders so we can become a welfare country.

    If this Rino BS doesn’t stop soon I am done with supporting Republicans. and quit voting. Even when we win these Republicans like McConnell and Ryan stand in his way. Strange how Dems NEVER DO THIS!!

    McConnel IS part of the swamp, and MUST be replaced as soon as his term ends.
    Republicans have no backbone, it is just plain disgusting. They may as well call themselves Democrats and be done with the 2 party system.
