How Should Carolyn McCarthy Vote on Syria Attack?

The President said he will let Congress debate and vote on military action against the Middle Eastern country.

President Barack Obama this weekend said he will let the U.S. congress decide on whether to attack Syria after an alleged chemical weapons attack by Syrian President Bashar Assad that killed hundreds of children and violated international rules of war.

As Americans are "weary of war," the president said in his Saturday address to the public that putting the decision in the hands of the people's representatives was more in line with the country's democratic ideals.

"I know that the country will be stronger if we take this course, and our actions will be even more effective," he said.

For people living in Merrick, that means Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, will be responsible for representing their voices in the debate.

Now is the time to tell McCarthy where you stand. Should she vote in favor of the Syria attack? Vote in our poll above and let us know in the comments.
