Back Home on the Hill

While Obama is in Europe, a divided U.S. Congress will continue to debate whether to grant authorization for a strike on Syria. Key lawmakers, including House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R- Virginia,) have publicly backed Obama, but many lawmakers remain reluctant about the possibility of the U.S. entering another conflict in the Middle East.
