Any chance of scuttling the Obama administration’s flawed, suicidal Iran nuclear deal via congressional action was thwarted when Sen. Barbara Mulkowski became the 34th vote the president needed to prevent the Senate from overriding the treaty.
However, Democrats weren’t the only ones busy sabotaging opposition to the Iran deal. Eight Republicans have also pledged their support to the deal. Now, conservatives need to let them know that we’ll remember their treason next primary season.
Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Dan Coats of Indiana, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Jeff Flake and John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Orrin Hatch of Utah and David Perdue of Georgia all voted with the Democrats on the Iran deal.
This in spite of a new report from the Iran Security Council that says the deal “will enable Iran to increase support for terrorist and insurgent proxies, aggravate sectarian conflict and trigger both nuclear and conventional proliferation cascades.”
In the report, the Iran Security Council said the deal will “provide the expansionist regime in Tehran with access to resources, technology and international arms markets required to bolster offensive military capabilities in the vital Persian Gulf region, acquire long-range ballistic missiles and develop other major weapons systems.”
