This bill is just more rhetoric brought about by the Democrats in DC to stir up more distention. The President understands the consequences of a Nuclear First Strike. I actually believe that there should be a panel of high ranking military and Homeland security personnel to be in agreement and have this authority. I definitely don't believe this should be in the hands of the Senate and House because all they are interested in is playing tug of war in just about everything including the lives of the very citizens they swore to represent. I believe in debate and the US Constitution, but The things I see going on in Washington on C Span makes me sick. They look and act more like a bunch of adolescents than my daughters Middle School does.
