CONGRESS SAYS YES---WARREN/MARKEY SAY NO

President Barack Obama says the Senate's approval of a plan to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels shows that Americans don't give in to fear. That was a reference to the killing of two Americans by the extremist group Islamic State. The rebels being trained are to do battle with the group. The measure was attached to a spending bill to keep the government operating in the new fiscal year. It cleared 78-22.   Both Massachusetts Senators voted against the proposal.
