Obama Confident Congress Will Vote in Favor of Syria Action

Members of Congress not so sure


President Obama said Tuesday he believes Congress will vote to authorize military action against Syria, and that he is willing to work with lawmakers on the wording of a specific resolution.

"We have high confidence that Syria used—in an indiscriminate fashion—chemical weapons that killed thousands of people, including over 400 children," Obama told reporters before meeting with members of Congress at the White House.
