McConnell’s Iran Deal Kabuki Won’t End the Filibuster

Senate Majority Leader appears to be taking last-ditch steps to stop the Iran deal, including an amendment that would prohibit President Barack Obama from lifting any sanctions until Ian lets four American captives go, and recognizes the State of Israel. However, McConnell’s ploy is just “kabuki” theater that will punish Democrats for supporting the Iran deal without stopping the deal itself.

Blue State Blues: A Senate Without Virtue, or Pride

The Iran deal will fail to muster enough votes to override an anticipated presidential veto. In the Senate, it may even fail to gather enough votes to stop Democrats from filibustering. The fact that Minority Leader Harry Reid wants to protect his members from having to vote on the Iran deal at all tells us exactly how bad it is. But it also tells us how weak the Republican opposition to the Iran deal has been from the start. And there must be political consequences.

Blue State Blues: Blame McConnell, Not Corker, for Weak Iran Deal Opposition

The real blame rests not with Corker, but with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who failed to defend the constitutional prerogatives of the Senate. He should have warned at the outset that if Obama failed to submit the Iran deal as a treaty as required, it would be dead–period.
