Breaking: Senate Dems Block Vote On Iran Deal

Senate Democrats successful filibustered a vote on the Iran atrocity today. Harry Reid managed to get 42 Democrats to block the vote.The official tally was 58-42.

“Demo­crat­ic Sen­at­ors just voted to fili­buster and block the Amer­ic­an people from even hav­ing a real vote on one of the most con­sequen­tial for­eign policy is­sues of our age,” ad­ded Sen­ate Ma­jor­ity Lead­er Mitch Mc­Con­nell after the vote as quoted by the National Journal.

McConnell, of course could have used the nuclear option ala' Harry Reid when he was majority leader to head this off, and in fact he still could. But I doubt he has the testosterone to do it, even when faced with an issue of grave national security.

“I think when [the Ir­a­ni­ans] con­tin­ue their ter­ror­ist activ­ity—their proxy war against the United States and our al­lies—you will be able to point to that and say, well, this is something that would not have happened but for the $100 bil­lion of ad­di­tion­al fund­ing that went in to fund this activ­ity,” said Sen­ate Ma­jor­ity Whip John Cornyn. “Or the lift­ing of sanc­tions which al­low the sale of 1 mil­lion bar­rels of oil a day.”

This is a day of craven, cowardly appeasement. Only 21% of the American people supported this monstrosity. While the Senators involved may pay a major price politically for their dishonorable action, it is the American people whom will ultimately pay the price in blood and treasure.

The Democrats own Iran now
