(09/06/13) - As the President pushes for approval from Congress, a Mid-Michigan
Congressman weighs in.
The president wants to hear from Congress before any action is taken.
Midland Republican Dave Camp says he's still undecided about his vote.
President Obama has been working hard to convince congress about the need for military strikes. Camp is scheduled to attend a classified briefing, in Washington, Monday.
He expects to come out with a better understanding about what congress is being asked to authorize. Camp says he's hearing a lot about the issue from the people he represents.
"My calls and contacts and emails are overwhelmingly against getting involved so I think it's really important to have an articulated long term strategy about whatever action might be taken, what it might mean not just for the immediate time but well into the future," he said.
Charles Zorn, a Vietnam veteran honored by Camp, Friday, thinks a strike against Syria is a bad idea.
"I don't know what he's going to do, my opinion is that they should do, it's going against humanity, but it's his decision," he said.
Camp says Congress is expected to act on the resolution in the next week.
