Today, Congressman Doug Lamborn joined a strong bipartisan majority in House by voting to fund the government and fight back against the terrorists of ISIS.

"I joined a bipartisan House majority in passing a Continuing Resolution to keep the government funded and to take the fight to the terrorists of ISIS. This vote is a small step which gives the President the authority to begin training and equipping appropriately vetted opposition forces from Syria. The President’s failed foreign policy has compounded this problem, so Congress will do what we can to assist him in crafting a more sound foreign policy. The United States must present a strong, unified front as we face these barbaric terrorists and today’s vote is a positive step in that direction."
