Congressman Jones: "I'll Vote No On Syria Resolution"

Republican Congressman Walter Jones says he will vote against the use of military force in Syria.

Wednesday Jones released the following statement: "I will vote against any proposal to authorize U.S. military intervention in Syria. The reality of America's dismal fiscal situation is that any money spent to bomb Syria will be borrowed from overseas or will be taken from the defense department's already-shrinking budget resulting in even fewer resources for Eastern North Carolina military installations. Neither of these options is acceptable."

President Obama is asking Congress to give him authorization to use military force in Syria.
