Senate Dems cower over Iran vote

Sept. 10, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to a Senate vote denying cloture to a resolution of disapproval of the Iran nuclear deal:

“Predictably, Harry Reid’s Senate Democrats are cowering from a vote on whether to support President Obama’s Iranian nuclear treaty. The fact that Obama does not want a Senate vote on his deal should make it clear that it would be rejected on a bipartisan basis in both houses.

“Given that Obama has not complied with the terms of the Corker-Cardin legislation and the deal he submitted is in fact a treaty, the Senate should abide by his wishes and not vote under this flawed process. Instead, the Senate should consider the deal as a treaty under Article II of the Constitution, requiring a two-thirds ratification vote of senators present, take it up, and defeat it.”
