Here is the vote as we go down the rabbit hole. What is the end game and how will we get there? Today I posted the same video with Bob Corker at the hearing with John Kerry, so two posts today.
Please, do listen to it, and write your Senator. Kerry states that the “Free Syrian Army” has ISIS on their heels.There is no plan. Period.

In a vote that eschewed traditional Washington divisions in favor of novel ones, the House approved a bill that authorized the training and arming of Syrian rebels in their fight against the so-called Islamic State.
The final tally was 273-to-156. But many members of both parties broke ranks with their leaders — Reps. John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi — who strongly backed the measure.
According to a count by NBC News’ Frank Thorp, 114 Democrats voted in favor of the measure; 85 voted no. Republicans broke down similarly voting 159-to-71.
