FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
Questions continue over President Obama's decision to send U.S. forces to Libya. Whether or not he complied with the War Powers Resolution, or if he even needed to.

The president says he didn't.
Either way, lawmakers didn't have much say in the matter - and 90 days into the conflict, they still don't. But what they do have a say in is how much money can go toward a military operation like this one.
And House speaker John Boehner– who has said repeatedly that the president was in violation of the Vietnam era resolution - says the House could cut funding for U.S. military involvement in Libya when it takes up a defense appropriations bill later this week.
On the Sunday talk show circuit, two Republican Senators - Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and John McCain of Arizona - both said they oppose cutting funding and warn that it could hurt NATO efforts in the region. Outgoing Defense Secretary Robert Gates also said cutting off funding in the middle of a military operation is always a mistake.
Gates also said he thinks that this conflict will "end okay" but he could not make a prediction as to how long it would last or when Moammar Gadhafi would fall.
But for a number of lawmakers the eventual outcome as well as the decision to go into Libya are beside the point. Last week, a bipartisan group of 10 House members filed a federal lawsuit challenging Obama's decision to send U.S. forces to Libya.
This is far from over.
Here’s my question to you: Should Congress cut off funding for operations in Libya?
Interested to know which ones made it on air?
Bryan in Colorado:
If the votes are there, why not? Let’s start cutting waste now. I applaud the congressmen who are demonstrating their disgust with our country's inability to break our spending addiction to war. This thing is starting to pickup steam because it crosses party lines. Americans are politically broke. They have nothing left to buy into the scare tactics and lies.
Ken in Pinon Hills, California:
Sure, and the funding for the other 60 countries in our military empire. Sooner or later we will have to, because we are broke. France, England, Spain, among others had to give up their overseas empires.
No, and prepare to step up operations there and Syria. Can’t stop now.
Steve in Clifton, Virginia:
Sure, if they want to commit political suicide and explain why they didn't cut off funding to the war of choice in Iraq once it was confirmed that there were "no weapons of mass destruction.
Denny in Tacoma, Washington:
I think that we would be better off if Congress cut off funds for running Congress.
Tom in DeSoto, Texas:
No, it's a wonderful opportunity to help the people escape tyranny. It may even do some good for the people, unlike in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Larry in Kansas:
While we have Congress seated and they're in the mood to cut something, not only should Congress cut off all funding for Libya, they should cut off funding and withdraw all troops from Afghanistan and Iraq, and any other Middle East Territory. It would save 700 billion dollars which could be used for American jobs, instead of helping people who hate us.
Paulette in Dallas, Pennsylvania:
No! President Obama needs to send the same crew that killed Bin Laden over to Libya to silence Gadhafi once and for all.
