Yoder expresses initial opposition to action in Syria

KANSAS CITY, KAN. --- U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder said tonight that as of Saturday, he would not support military action against Syria.

However, he said he would give "full consideration" to President Barack Obama's plan for Syria.

Full statement:
I do not believe a military attack against Syria is warranted at this time.  However, I do appreciate today's announcement by the President that he will seek the input of the American people and the consent of Congress. I look forward to discussing the President's plan with my constituents and giving it full consideration on the floor of the United States House of Representatives.
