Rep. Mike Conaway: [Constituents] ‘Not Persuaded’ Of Need For Military Intervention
Congressman Mike Conaway (R) says that he and the people in his district are not behind the President’s plan to attack Syria on it’s use of chemical weapons.
It is unquestioned that the use of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons should be universally condemned and confronted. However, I believe that the president has not yet presented a plan that would fully address the use of chemical weapons in Syria and prevent future chemical attacks by the Assad regime on the Syrian people. As I have heard at town halls and from calls to my offices, the people of Texas’ 11th congressional district aren’t persuaded either. It is the responsibility of the president to make a case for military intervention and the responsibility of Congress to vote on it. As I return to Washington next week, I will continue to push for answers and evidence on the situation in Syria and the future of the Assad regime. – Rep. Mike Conaway
